Burton Marathon, 10k, 5k
October 13 @ 09:00 - 17:00
On the edge of Burton Bradstock, where you can camp the night before if you wish.(You must book through Bredy farm)
With parking close by and the start within 50 meters of the Cider bar, its something to look forward to at the end.(As long as someone else is driving), its also a great place for your family to relax as you do all the work.The routes are on nice quite country roads, with aid stations on route and our as always welcoming environment, we want everyone to finish the marathon who starts and if you can manage 7 hours and under then #PUSHYOURLIMITS and enter now.
New to running, wanting to build up to bigger distances, the 5 km is for you, its a gentle nice easy going route, an out and back 2.5 km, flat other than the 50 Meter finishing slope, Children 14 and under run for free as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
There are no major hills on the 10 km route (but one minor small one), many people achieved PB’s in 2016/17 so could you if you put the effort in, its a straight out and back there will be a feed at the turn point to help you fly home.
The Marathon an elusive target for most runners, but its achievable if you train for it, you will have plenty of support on route so there is no better time than now to try, its two laps of the half marathon course, so you can take as long as you need after the first lap, have a breather, a coffee and then go for it.
