Race admin and late entries...

Both the Half Marathon and the 5K finish and Race Admin will be in the Youth Centre at Sturminster Newton High School (DT10 1DT).

The main race car park is also at the school, with access from Honeymead Lane. When this is full we will direct you to either the Leisure Centre or to other local car parks.

Race numbers will need to be collected on the day so please allow time to do this.

Refreshments – well, we are runners, and we like food,
especially after a long run!

Our refreshments team, who are raising money for the High School Walking Club, will help you refuel after the race with tea, coffee, hot food and home made cakes. You will also be able to get a refreshing real ale, cider or a glass of wine from our beer tent.
