Summer Sessions 2021
31 May 2021
Weekend at the Races makes a triumphant return for 2021, 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 a Bank Holiday weekend events includes a 12-hour frolic, full marathon, a 10-mile race, kids' races and an 8-hour frolic over three days. An action-packed weekend is waiting for you and your family with camping and entertainment on site.
The Summer Sessions return for a Monday recovery run – or maybe a marathon or a chance to complete three marathons in one weekend! It's an 8-hour Frolic event, on a 5.2-mile loop, however you can turn up and start at anytime during the day and run as many or as few laps as you like. There are various terrains to navigate – some tracks, fields, sandy paths and woodland areas – so a nice mix underfoot, which is slightly technical in places. To get a flavour of the event, here's a review from 2019.
There will be hot food and drink vendors ready to serve you pre- and post-race.
Prizes are awarded on the line for the first three male and female runners, with all finishers receiving a medal, muff and some yummy Dorset goodies for completing the event.
