Race Countdown


The stage is set for the return of the Dorchester Lion's annual 10K race and fun run around the County Town.

With the weather set to be bright and dry organisers are expecting around 300 people to lace up and take part.

The route is slightly changed on last years damp and cold affair but it still takes in the scenic countryside around Maiden Castle.

Registration is from 9am until 10:15am before the start gun sounds at 10:25am. There's still time to get involved and runners can even sign up on the day.

Andy Rose from the Lions Club says the 10K race is hitting new heights and gaining popularity;

"Our 10K route is really popular and has been advertised on Runners World. It's an event, or a route, that's proving very popular with seasoned 10K runners because it's scenic and it takes in both off road and on road tracks, and the runners seem to enjoy that."




Wessex FM will be there supporting the runners on race day, good luck!

Although you can sign up on raceday, you can also sign on the dotted line in advance here.
