28th May 2017
The marathon route aims to challenge runners across the 26.2 miles with breath taking views across Dorset countryside. Taking Place on Sunday 28th May 2017. It's the perfect event to show off the beautiful Dorset countryside and keep running rural, White Star Running's ethos.
WSR also believe in free photos, once you've run 26.2 miles you don't want to buy a photo of you looking all hot and sweaty, so we employ our snappers to get a photo of you looking great in the race and pre and post event, we will share them on Facebook, Twitter Instagram and place them on our flickr account for you. Obviously if these is a pic you object to …hair is a mess or bum's too big, we will take it down.
They are free for you to download or share to your hearts content.
