Entry into The Purbeck Marathon in 2016 will automatically enter you into the Purbeck Trail Series.
So what’s new with the Purbeck Trail Series in 2016?
We are pleased to announce that we have added a sixth race to the series!
The Lulworth Castle 10k on 14th August will be race number 1 in the 6 race challenge.
Your best 4 race points will count for your total which adds some flexibility to the races you choose to run.
There will again be a club / team prize; this will be for a mixed team of two men and two women with each club’s best two men’s and women’s added for all six races.
It doesn’t have to be the same runners in all races just the best two of both genders for each club / team.

Who organizes it?

How does it work?
A maximum of four results for each runner count and decide the prizes.

Points are awarded for each position in all the races regardless of gender.
The winner of each race will get 500 points, 2nd 499 points, 3rd 498 points etc.
Every place counts so there is an incentive to get ahead of the runner ahead be it man or woman.
