The Purbeck Marathon 2014

The 2014 event was held on Sunday 14th September.

Race day dawned overcast and misty but by the time the start horn was blown the mist was clearing and the sun came out to showcase the finest scenery that Purbeck has to offer!

This year’s male race was a close run competition between Matthew Bennett of Southampton AC and our 2012 and 2013 winner Steve Way of Bournemouth AC. The long climb out of Corfe Castle eventually separating them with Matthew winning in a time of 3:00:50:9.

The ladies race was also very close competition with Lisa Hale of Sandhurst Joggers the eventual winner in 4:03:16:3 with Melanie Jewett (Eastleigh Running Club) only 17 seconds behind and Anna Douglas only another half a minute behind that!
