Event Description

Join Nice Work for a weekend of challenges along scenic the Jurassic Coast! 

Nice Work are pleased to be organising the 2020 Purbeck Running Festival.

Swanage, Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast has spectacular history, landscapes and views, and have been home to The Purbeck Marathon and Purbeck 16 for a number of years. 

The course with 2000 feet of climbs provides a predominately off-road Marathon that is both challenging and rewarding. It is possibly one of the most scenic marathons in the UK.

In addition to the Purbeck Marathon and 16 Mile race, we are pleased to a choice of events and days to the weekend.

For the first time there will be a choice of Ultra, Marathon, 16 Mile, 6 Mile and 3 Mile. 
Throw in Nordic Walking and there is a choice for everyone!

New for 2020 We are offering runners the oppitunity to run the marathon or 16 mile on both the Saturday or the Sunday... or both! 

Race HQ & 3 Mile Start - Sandpit Field, Swanage, Dorset, BH19 1LA

The Weekend includes…. 

The Purbeck Running Festival
45 Mile Ultra; The Purbeck Marathon

The weekend is now under the management of Nice Work and we will continue to add more improvements to the race this year. We bring to you the same fantastic scenery, big hills, fully signed and marshalled course, but with some new additions: 

  • A fantastic large bespoke medal for all finishers

  • A technical t-shirt for all Ultra and Marathon finishers (or purchase for £10 for other races)

  • Well stocked aid stations for the Ultra, Marathon and 16 races with a selection of sweets and goodies.
