Lulworth Cove Trail Running Challenge

Lulworth Cove, Wareham, Dorset
10km, half-marathon, Marathon, Ultra
A rearranged date from 3 March for this wonderful new trail run from Lulworth Cove in Dorset, along one of the most beautiful and recognisable stretches of coastline in the Country. Starting at the Lulworth Cove car park, right on the on the South West Coast Path - a beautiful place to begin - runners head off up the hill to one of the most photographed areas in the Country, the World famous Durdle Door. All four distances will take the stretch of coastline which goes to Weymouth. The 10k turns off half way along and climbs away from the coast to find the higher coastal path, before heading back to Lulworth and the finish. The rest of the field carry on to Osminton Mills, leaving the coast path for a while before joining the upper coast path and heading back to Lulworth Cove, enjoying the views from a different direction and a slightly higher view point.

In short:
Slightly over distance trail marathon with a bit of an incline, Snowdon, near the end! Over 5000 feet of accent going near, but not quite, to the top of Snowdon in mile 22. The weather was kind on the day, they even relaxed the mandatory kit so I did not have to carry too much. Just a bit hot at the start and a bit cold at the top. My second marathon this month with a faster time than Boston. I seem to run a lot quicker if I don’t waste an hour in a medical tent!
