BACKGROUND - The CapTEN and The Bosun are races with history, born from a Round Table in Bridport before morphing into Bridport Runners Jurassic Coast 10k and Half Marathon, races held in West Bay. 2020 saw Bridport Runners rename and relocate the race due to a proliferation of 'Jurassic' runs in the area, thus the CapTEN was born (TEN miles over Golden Cap, hence the nautical name pun). 2022 brings the race under the banner of 32RUN rather than Bridport Runners, ex club chairman Ben still being part of the team. The Bosun also joins The CapTEN as a shorter race and a second date in the calendar.

UPDATE | NEW COURSE FOR 2022 - In a quest for a best race for its competitors we've changed the course for 2022! Gone is West Cliff, West Bay and Highlands End, we've eliminated a few crossing of the busy Eype and Highlands roads as well as a few pinch points. The course now heads further West to St Gabriels and adds the pleasure of Chardown Hill, the bonus for you all is the course is now slightly hillier!

The CapTEN is a 10 mile fell run, taking in Thorncombe Beacon and Golden Cap, two of the crown jewels of the South West Coast Path and Jurassic Coastline.

The race starts and finishes in the seaside village of Seatown, heading East to Eype before looping back over Thorncombe Beacon (515ft), running 4 miles of the South West Coast Path to include Golden Cap (626ft), heads inland over Chardown Hill (636ft), through Langdon Wood before dropping back down to the finish.

 

Taking in 2,604 feet of climbing we aim to bring the spirit of fell running to the coast!

'Fell running, sometimes known as hill running or mountain running, is the sport of running and racing, off road, over upland country where the gradient climbed is a significant component of the difficulty. The name arises from the origins of the English sport on the fells of northern Britain, especially those in the Lake District.' FIND OUT ABOUT THE FELL RUNNING HERE
