Photos & videos of the routes have been posted in the Facebook event for you to see
We are running mainly on the Dorset section of the SWCP, which is predominantly tracks, paths & fields. The path is marked on signs by an Acorn symbol and is a track for the majority of the way, some sections will pass through built up areas but is still marked. All the paths we use are usually well-maintained public access routes.
The course is designed to take in the smashing views and beautiful coastline Dorset has to offer. The route will have our usual route arrows/markers where relevant and marshals at critical points along the route. This is because it is already well marked with the Acorn signs and helps ensure that we have the minimum possible impact on what is a beautiful and natural environment already.
Be safe & responsible- keep away from the cliff edge, on some stretches the path is narrow and very close to the cliff edge- STAY AWAY from it. The view is beautiful, but you don’t need to be on the edge to enjoy it. Keep a safe distance from the edge of the cliff at all times. The nature of the coast path means on certain sections you will be walking/running close to the edge of the cliff. This represents a ‘significant risk’ and extra care must be taken.
Please follow the route marked because of the specialist environment we are running in it may be changed due to unforeseen circumstances, this will be covered in the race briefing before the start of each race.
