Bridport Half Marathon, 5k & 10k

Bridport, Dorset

Organiser's Description

The very popular Bridport Half marathon, 5k & 10k will return in 2020 with all routes again starting and finishing at Bridport football club, just next to St Mary's field, on the western edge of Bridport. The Half and 10k will be open to traffic, however the run is on wide pavements and cycle-paths, making this a safe, scenic route around Bridport town. And the medal at the end will make you smile! The 5k run will follow the quieter roads around the town, and because we want to encourage as many people to run as possible (Including children) it is an easy 2.5k lap (x2), on wide pavements or through parks, so super safe.

Half Marathon

Adjusted route for 2020 will see it a flatter run with more of the route through Bridport itself.

More details to follow.

10km (Same route as 2018/2019)

The 10 km route will start in one of the main parks of Bridport, this is to help separate out the runners before heading into the road sections through North Allington and onto the flat of St Swithens and Pymore, after which is a very small hill (the only one) which takes us over Dodham's lane.

The run from here follows wide cycle-paths and is a flat speedy affair, which will take you through one of the fastest run sections in Bridport "Barrack street", a great place to have friends and family cheer you on, as its a glut of coffee shops, also it gives them enough time to walk back to the finish, to watch as you cross the finish line.

The final KM are flat, wide and although not fun at the time, the medal at the end will make you smile.

5km (Same route as 2018/2019)

The 5 km run will start just next to the football club entrance, it will head out towards the lesuire centre and then will follow wide pavements and through parks.

Because we want to encourage as many people to run as possible (Including children) its a nice safe easy two 2.5 km laps, on wide pavements, or through parks (Paths and cycle ways), so super safe. Great for kids and adults that just are not quite ready for the bigger distance.
