Races by Runners for Runners

White star Running aims to organise fun, sociable and value for money running events, for runners of all abilities. We believe in races that are tough, marshals that are friendly, views that are awesome and beer that is cold.

We work with people to bring the best value to our events, parish councils, local running clubs and volunteer groups. We work with some of the best companies in the country to make our races interesting, fun, challenging and affordable.

We love running. Its our passion, our sport and we love a glass of Cider and a cake afterwards.

Dont run indoors, run with us.

White Star Running Races

Easy Running

Gentle slopes, guaranteed sunshine, always downhill.
“White Star Running aims to organise fun, sociable and value for money running events, for runners of all abilities, with no corporate claptrap. We believe in races that are tough, marshals that are friendly, views that are awesome and beer that is cold.”.
In 2018 the Giants Head Marathon will be our 100th race. We will be launching new races, new locations and new ideas for runners soon. No need to settle for pounding the streets, you can join with thousands of other runners who run with us to enjoy the beauty of Dorset and a good natter after a hard race.
