The Purbeck Running Festival - The Purbeck 5k

Join Nice Work for a weekend of challenges along the Jurassic Coast! Nice Work are pleased to be staging the 2020 Purbeck Outdoor Weekend including the Purbeck Running Festival. Swanage, Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast has spectacular history, landscapes and views, and have been home to The Purbeck Marathon and Purbeck 16 for a number of years. The course with 2000 feet of climbs provides a predominately off-road Marathon that is both challenging and rewarding. It is possibly one of the most scenic marathons in the UK.
