POOLE FESTIVAL OF RUNNING 2017
Now running over 2 days and featuring a new spectator friendly time trial on Saturday evening, this year’s festival promises to be bigger and better than ever.
It may have a moved to a new time of 10:30 on Sunday morning, but our flagship event retains the same fast and flat course, with a fantastic atmosphere, musical entertainment on course, and an entry field of all abilities. All finishers get a t-shirt, medal and goody bag. PLEASE NOTE: The order has now been placed for t-shirts, so while we have tried to correctly estimate the sizes required, we cannot guarantee the correct size will be available for new entries.
NOTE: Minimum age for entry is 16 years on race day. Due to the confines of the course, the event is not suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs or buggies etc and please – no dogs.
(This is subject to change so please check the website or facebook page nearer the time for any revisions).
