Bridport Jurassic Coast Run with record number of entrants and new black-and-white-striped sponsor

It’s less than two weeks until the fifth Bridport Jurassic Coast Run kicks off – and the limit for entrants has almost been reached: Close to 200 runners have already signed in for the two challenging races – a 10k and a half-marathon – which is the limit for the event taking place on Sunday, 6 August, during West Bay Days ‎in West Bay.

The organisers, Bridport Runners and Brit Valley Rotary, are not only very delighted with the response from runners ahead of race day but also of the support of Bridport’s own Leakers Bakery who are the sponsor of this year’s Bridport Jurassic Coast Run. The well-known bakery on Bridport’s East Street shares much ground with Bridport Runners: Both are true believers in locally sourced and sustainable food and have black and white stripes in their logos. “As a producer of food for people with a variety of dietary needs, Leakers are proud to sponsor the Jurassic Coast Run and wish all runners a great race”, said Jemima Dasent of Leakers Bakery.

The Bridport Jurassic Coast Run starts Sunday, 6 August, at 10:30 am from The Old Salt House in West Bay. Registration for the races is still open online through the websites of Runners World (www.runnersworld.co.uk) and RunBritain (www.runbritain.com); see “Bridport Jurassic Coast Run” under “Events” or “Races”.
