BRIDPORT HALF and 10 km
19 FEBRUARY 2023

The Bridport Half and 10km returns in 2023 for the sixth year with a welcoming relaxed run around the Dorset countryside.

Registration is at Bridport football club, as is parking for most cars, overflow parking is in various other car parks around the town, all of which are within 500m of registration and the start.

With the same routes as 2022 incorporating more of Bridport town itself but keeping the flatter parts of previous years running.

The route will be open to traffic, however there are plenty of wide pavements, quiet roads and cycle-paths to run on also with plenty of marshals around the course, the run is a safe, scenic route around Bridport town and surrounding villages.

ABOUT THE ROUTE

Dependent on your route choice will depend on how much of a test you will have,

The Half marathon has a couple of tough hills but also includes many flat, fast sections.

The 10km has just one hill and could be a fast 10km.

Other than the hills it is a mix of flat fast open running, including running through the town, however there are plenty of wide pavements, quiet roads, and cycle-paths to run on.

We cannot promise a PB, but we can promise a run in the beautiful Dorset countryside.

This is a small local run, it is a very welcoming, just come and enjoy a run and grab a nice medal as a reward.

Strictly limited to 300 runners.
