Saturday August 17th is a key date in the diary for all runners from Dorset and beyond!

An evening event to avoid the heat of the day, and see the sunflowers at their best, we hope you will join us for 5k and 10k races.

The 5k is open to accompanied runners age 13 and above, the 10k to runners 16 and above.

After meeting in the large grassy carpark just outside the lovely county town of Dorchester, runners weave their way through the mighty sunflower plants before joining bridleways to take them to the stunning Maiden Castle, Europe's largest Hill Fort.

We have fully marked 5k and 10k routes, which include an aid station. Both involve a fair elevation, but you will be rewarded with outstanding views to Weymouth in the South, and Hardy's Monument to the West. The routes are not too challenging, so suitable for runners of all abilities. Canicross to be confirmed!!

On return runners will be presented with a fabulous Sunflower medal, and food and a licenced bar will be in attendance.

The Sunflower Trail donates a considerable sum each year to the Dorchester Hospital Charity, and this event will also support them.
