The Jurassic Coast Gets Ready for the Purbeck Marathon September 16th 2012
Rose Clarke, part of the Organisational Team behind the event says: “We have a very active running community in the Purbecks, including a very well supported running club. The area already boasts popular 5k, 10k and Half Marathon races so it was time to complete that package with a marathon. We can offer a truly unique event, incorporating some of the best of the UK’s Coast and Countryside into one race with the added bonus of a great experience for supporters. We are positive that the Purbeck Marathon will quickly establish itself in the World running calendar.”
Billed as “One of The World’s Most Scenic Marathons” the organisers hope to attract approximately 300 runners for this year’s launch event. News seems to be travelling fast, with registration enquiries coming in via the web site, running clubs and with an active Twitter campaign already in place, the event is sure to be a winning formula. With proceeds going to local charities it already has wide support within the community.
