Bridport Runners are introducing ‘THE CapTEN’, a 10 mile registered fell run taking in Thorncombe Beacon, Golden Cap – and 2,400 feet of climbing! The CapTEN replaces the Bridport Jurassic Coast Run, but still covers most of that event’s 10k course, consolidating the two distances (10k and half-marathon) into the most epic 10 miler.

There will be a few changes, though: The decision has been made to move the race from August to May and the start being relocated to Seatown. New for next year’s race will also be a team prize for the fastest club to put three finishers over the line. The CapTen will be a cup-less race to reduce single use plastic usage and littering. “Our Bridport Jurassic Coast Run may have ended”, says Bridport Runners’ Chair Ben Renshaw, “but ‘long live The CapTEN!’” Race entries are open on FullOnSport now.

Is it hilly you ask for? 2,400 feet of elevation gain over 10 miles, accredited by the Fell Runners’ Association (and tested by Bridport Runners). The course climbs Thorncombe Beacon (twice), West Cliff and Golden Cap as it’s highlights (chart by Adam Slater with courtesy of Bridport Runners).
