The Purbeck Running Festival - The Purbeck Marathon - Saturday Event

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.

In addition to the Purbeck Marathon and 16 Mile race, we are pleased to a choice of events and days to the weekend. For the first time there will be a choice of Ultra, Marathon, 16 Mile, 10k and 5k with the option to run the marathon on either the Saturday or the Sunday, or both! Throw in Nordic Walking and there is a choice for everyone!

The Purbeck Outdoor weekend takes place on 19th – 20th September and brings runners and walkers from all over the region.

The Weekend includes….

The Purbeck Running Festival
45 Mile Ultra; The Purbeck Marathon
The Purbeck 16; The Purbeck 6
The Purbeck 3

The weekend is now under the management of Nice Work and we will continue to add more improvements to the race this year. We bring to you the same fantastic scenery, big hills, fully signed and marshalled course, but with some new additions:

A fantastic large bespoke medal for all finishers

A technical t-shirt for all Ultra and Marathon finishers (or purchase for £10 for other races)

Well stocked aid stations for the Ultra, Marathon and 16 races with a selection of sweets and goodies.

An event village including teas, coffee, light snacks and cakes and a licenced bar.
