Purbeck 10k 2019 @ The Downs
Jun 21 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Purbeck 10k 2019 @ The Downs | England | United Kingdom

The Purbeck 10K is a new race chosen to compliment the existing Purbeck Marathon and Purbeck 16. The Purbeck 10K will use the same start and a portion of the existing routes before turning uphill and back on itself to finish at the start line.

As always our races give you more and in this case it is a little more than 10K

Just like or other races the Purbeck 10K is tough but very scenic and the shorter distance give those that cannot take part in the longer races the chance to experience the scenery for themselves.

The Purbeck 10K has a couple of hard climbs, uneven paths and is nothing like running a road based race!

The Purbeck 10K is a local community event and the proceeds will be distributed to local charities. Just like the marathon this is more than just a 10K mile race, it’s a Purbeck 10K.

The race will be run under UKA Rules.
