The second ‘Lighthouse Loop’ 5k fun run will be held on the 21st August on the final day of Lifeboat Week 2011.
Strictly a fun run, the course will take entrants up the downs with views across Durlston Bay to the Isle of Wight before entering the spectacular Durlston Country Park and following the cliff line to the Castle, currently undergoing major renovation work.
From here the course follows well defined trails to Tilly Whim (with the chance of spotting a few dolphins if you’re lucky) before heading to the top of the ridge ready for the downhill return journey.
Open to anyone, just turn up at Prince Albert Gardens from 8 o’clock to register for £5. The race will start at 9 o’clock and a prize giving for juniors, adults and veterans will be held shortly after the last runner completes the circuit.
Teas, coffees and bacon butties will be available throughout the event, what a great way to start the day!
