Moreton, Dorchester, Dorset, DT2 8RH
Weekend at the Races is perfectly positioned to help us celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee this year. The event is based in the village of Moreton, near Dorchester.
We’re lucky to host this event on a family-owned estate that has been in their hands since the Norman Conquest, which means not many others run around it. By White Star Running standards, these races aren’t overly hilly, but it can be a bit demanding underfoot in places. Taking place over an extended Bank Holiday weekend, events include the usual 12-hour Frolic, full marathon, a 10-mile race and kids’ race. Then, new for 2022, a half marathon and a twilight 5-mile evening race to create an action-packed weekend.
Thursday – NEW Twilight Unicorn 5 Mile
Friday – Moreton Marathon, NEW Moreton Half Marathon, and Little Unicorns
Saturday – Unicorn Frolic
Sunday – Moreton 10 Mile
With camping and entertainment on site, it’s a great way to celebrate this Platinum year.
NEW FOR 2022. When you enter our races you will be able to opt out of receiving your finisher’s goodies, which we usually hand out at the end of the race. Instead, the cost of your goody bag will be donated to the Wilder Dorset Appeal, and you can read more about that project here. If you don’t opt out, you will still get your goody bag, and you can optionally choose to make a personal contribution if you wish here. Every runner still gets a medal.
To keep up to date on all the information on the event, make sure you’ve followed the Facebook Event.
