A REASON TO RUN

Due to the lack of racing early in 2021, Bridport Runners has foregone it’s normal club championship in favour of a series of monthly challenges for it’s members.

We’ve named this the Golden Snail Series, a play on the Golden Trail Series, in order to get our members out and keep them motivated through these unusual times.

This month we’re hunting trig points…

Join your local running club, stay motivated

The CapTEN is back!

Bridport Runners Fell Race, The CapTEN, will be returning in 2021 on Sunday 12th September!

For those that missed out last year:

The CapTEN is a 10 mile fell run, organised by Bridport Runners, taking in Thorncombe Beacon and Golden Cap, two of the crown jewels of the South West Coast Path and Jurassic Coastline.The race starts and finishes in the seaside village of Seatown, heading East over Thorncombe Beacon before looping back on West Cliff above West Bay. The second part of this figure of 8 course climbs out of Seatown, over Golden Cap (626ft), through Langdon Wood before dropping back down to the finish.

Taking in 2,400 feet of climbing we aim to bring the spirit of fell running to the coast!

Entry details to follow.

GOLDEN SNAIL SERIES 2021

For those of you that don’t know:

The Golden Trail World Series exists to celebrate and evolve trail running as a sport. The series stands out in the modern sports world respecting unique values like parity, equity, transparency and honesty. The races have been chosen to highlight the most iconic events in the sport today.


It aims to promote professional trail runners as the world-class athletes that they are, to showcase and protect the awe-inspiring natural environments where we play and compete…

This is NOT the Golden Trail Series, this is BRIDPORT RUNNERS GOLDEN SNAIL SERIES 2021!

Covid killed Bridport Runners Club Championship in 2020 which involved the clubs participation in 20+ local races. With entry deferrals from 2020, the threat of postponement and/or cancelation it seems wrong to propose a similar list for 2021.

As a result, welcome the Golden Snail Series, a series of club only time trials, challenges, and events to get us through 2021!

Even for those of you that don’t feel ready to return to club running, these events will be totally Covid secure from an organisational perspective.

ALL HAIL THE SNAIL!
