Sun May 28th 2017 at 08.00 - 22.00

Marathon and Half Marathon run through and around Dorchester

The Race is almost here!

Organisers of the Dorchester marathon and accompanying half-marathon are hoping 1,800 runners will race through the town and villages including Affpuddle and West Stafford.

Andy Palmer of White Star Running said the races, planned for 28th May 2017, would "keep running rural".

The events, co-organised by Casterbridge Rotary Club in Dorchester, will also raise money for charities including the air ambulance.

Road marathons are currently held annually in Bournemouth and in and around Sturminster Newton.

Mr Palmer said: "There has been a call by runners for a more rural road race in the county. We have such a beautiful county and we want to encourage everyone to get out and enjoy it.

The event was lauched on 29th April 2016 in the Town Hall supported by the sponsors and local officials
