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.
