Round the Rock 10k

Round the Rock started life in 2008 as the RMPAC Silver Jubilee 10k, after which it was decided to hold the race on an annual basis, with the new name of Round the Rock voted for by club members.

The route is undulating, predominately on tarmac roads and pavements, and takes you around the top of the Isle of Portland in a figure of eight, with a short loop of two and a half kilometres and a longer loop of seven and a half kilometres.

You will be too busy taking in the sights as you pass the prison, and admiring the breath taking sea views as you run past Pennsylvania castle to notice the distance you have covered!

Once again Round the Rock is a DRRL event and has sold out in previous years, so please don’t delay in securing your place.

Round the Rock 10K is run under UKA rules (UKA License Number 2019-36356) and has been accurately measured by Association of UK Course measurers (Cert 17/254).
