The Bournemouth Marathon Festival is taking place again on 1/2 of October 2016, and one Bridport Runner can claim the free place for it. The race event consists of a marathon, a half-marathon, the “supersonic 10k” and the “supernova 5k”. The organisers claim that the course is “fast and picturesque, making it a must-do for anyone looking to set a PB.” They add that the course offers “stunning sea views, fresh crisp clean air and the very best of Bournemouth and Poole.” Anyone interested in claiming the free Club place, please contact Sara. In its 4th year the Bournemouth Marathon has already quite a good reputation among Bridport Runners: In 2013, this was the place where Vicky and Ben ran their first marathon, accompanied by Kazy. A year later it was up to Sarah (Courtney-Hughes), Karen and Debbie (Gale) to finish Bridport Runners’ “B series” in Bournemouth. And last year, four Bridport ladies started (and finished) succesfully in the 10k and the half: Debbie (Cox), Lucy, Sam and Nancy all had (a) good time(s) in Bournemouth. So who will be the lucky Bridport Runner this time?
