Organiser's Description

This summer our amazing Ultra Marathon is back. As the name implies, its a race from one side of Dorset to the coast.

Starting at College Farm, day 1 will take you over wide open country and rolling down land to Charisworth Farm, just south of Blandford. Here you can set up your own tent, or rent a fabulous bell tent for a group of friends. Refreshments and licenced bar will be available.

On the Sunday you continue south, passing through pine forests and lowland heath before passing Wareham and Corfe Castle, and finally ascending the Purbeck hills to reveal the coast and your finishing point just above Chapmans Pool. Stunning views of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO world heritage site and Poole harbour will thrill you.

For those who enjoy a big challenge a non-stop ultra is offered.

Course Details

The course encompasses many of my own favourite trails.

Starting within a short distance of the famous cathedral city of Salisbury and finishing looking over the sea at Chapmans Pool it provides the most inspirational journey.

You will travel over rolling downland, through nature reserves, the course of roman roads, ancient woodland, lowland heath and glorious river meadows.

Wonderful aid stops will allow you to replenish your liquids and snacks, as well as meet up with supporters.

FAQs

  • Is there transport available back to the start?

    Yes, both marathons and the ultra have transport if required.

  • I've never done an ultra before, should I have a go?

    Why not? If you are a strong runner this is a great event to dip into the ultra scene. With very long day length and a varied course its a great race to start on.

  • How safe is it?

    We take the safety of our runners seriously. The event is fully insured, medics are in attendance and first-aid trained sweeper will follow the runners. The significant road crossing are manned and safety signs are used at all the key points.

  • Is camping an option?

    Yes. Our start point at Summerlands camping is a great place to stay, as is the half-way point, Charisworth Farm where you can pitch your own tent or a group could rent a fabulous bell tent. For those who prefer a solid roof the county has many pubs and B&B's to chose from.
