Portland 10 - Portland 10

In 1980 three bored sailors stationed at the Royal Naval Air Station came up with the idea of a 10 mile race on Portland, the cost was 40 pence to enter! Today the race has developed into a testing 10 mile route that will see you run a lap and a half around the top of the island, from one end of the island, Portland Heights Hotel (385 ft), to the other, Portland Bill (30 ft). The route is undulating, on tarmac roads and pavements and goes through built up areas as well as following long stretches of coastal roads.

The race start and finish is IPACA school, Portland and limited parking, as well as toilet and changing facilities, are available. To get there by road head for Weymouth then follow the signs for Portland on the A354. Follow the main road to the top of Portland at the Heights Hotel roundabout turn right and follow the main road to the end where there will be a church on your right hand side and the Red Triangle Cricket Club on your left. At this junction turn right and you will see the school on your left, after approximately 150 yards you will come of the entrance to the school. If using a Satnav enter the postcode DT5 2RS.
