With a return to racing, following the lifting of Covid restrictions, Bridport Runners are finding their feet again.
Last Sunday (11/7/2021) saw club chairman Ben Renshaw doing what he does best, road racing, taking 3rd place at the Puddletown Plod half marathon with a new PB of 1:13:56, he did pick up the M40 age category win but we’re not sure he’ll want to advertise that fact.
Ben ran in the lead pack of 3 with Egdon Heath Harriers Ben Foyle (1st) and Matt Papa (2nd) until losing contention in the final mile, a valiant effort as Ben has yet to start training properly this year!
WHITE STAR PIGGY PLOD 10k
Today (18/7/2021) saw a rather hot White Star Running Piggy Plod 10k at the Cider Frolic with Bridport Runners newest Run Leader Hannah Slater taking 3rd female.
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!
