Dorset Ooser Half Marathon
August 16 @ 10:00 - 14:30
The Races start from an ancient thatched barn in a historic tiny hamlet of Turners Puddle in the heart of Dorset.
The routes go straight uphill from the start, and then follow farm tracks, fields, trails that wind through ancient woodlands, old hidden holloways (sunken trails following historic drovers routes), short road sections through picturesque hamlets, managed woodland tracks, heathland, and all in the glorious Dorset countryside.
The Races are predominantly trail. Despite all that lovely countryside though this race is not a pushover.
The Half Marathon has a maximum of 2.6km (approx) in total of short tarmac sections, the longest being 1.3km.
There is a generous 4.5 hour cut off time limit on the Half Marathon.
Half Marathon start – 10am
