Portland Coastal Half Marathon 2021
7th November 2021 @ 12:00 am
For 2021 and beyond, the route will have no specific markers relevant to the Portland Coastal Marathon. This is to ensure that we have the minimum possible impact on what is a beautiful and natural environment along the way.
You are expected to navigate the route yourself.
Along with the half distance event there will be a Full marathon and a 10k so all abilities can take part in this festival of running in a what is possibly the most stunning of coastal trail locations.
The route follows the Portland section of the South West Coastal Path. The path is marked on fingerpost signs by an Acorn symbol and is a well trodden track for the majority of the way.
Basic principle for the half is ‘keep the sea on your left and the land on your right’ and you will not go far wrong.
