Purbeck Running Festival – Ultra and 5k

14/09/2019 @ 10:00 - 17:00

Purbeck Marathon

New for 2019 –

Purbeck Ultra

Building on the success of The Purbeck Marathon we are offering you a new challenge. Not for the faint hearted our new Ultra will challenge even experienced ultra runners.

With the marathon route already set up we though you’d like twice the fun, double the climb (7025ft), double the distance (54 miles) double the challenge. To put it another way The Purbeck Ultra climb is more than one and a half times the height of Ben Nevis!

Making good use of the existing marathon course with plenty of fully stocked water stations, fully signed and marshalled this Ultra will give you all the support you need.

Purbeck 5k

Taking advantage of the course that is already set up, The Purbeck 5K will start and finish on the downs above the Pier in Swanage.

Designed to give all ages something to have a go at and with 195m of climb and decent in such a short distance, this route will still be a challenge even though it is only 5K.

Just like all our races, The Purbeck 5K is a local community event and the proceeds will be distributed to local charities. Just like the marathon this is more than just a 5K race, it’s a Purbeck 5K.
