Unicorn Frolic 2021
30 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 Unicorn Frolic race is on a 5.2-mile loop that takes on the trails around the private estate of the Frampton family. 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 race report from 2019.
What is a Frolic?
Over a 12-hour period, you do as much running as you want. Complete at least one lap to get your medal and goody bag. Frolics are relaxed events with a fun atmosphere. You can run in teams of 4, 3, 2 or go solo. Solo runners can do as many laps as they want. To hit marathon distance, make sure you start at 8am and do six laps. If you're in a team, only one of you runs at a time, then you swap over as and when you feel like it.
After you've entered, if you want to add a member to your team, you can! Simply select the 'Additional Team Member' entry from the list and select your team name from the drop-down in the 'Join Team Name' box to add.
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.
