A NEW, monthly National Trust running event has been launched at Stonebarrow on the Golden Cap Estate in Charmouth.

The Trust10 is a free 10km event which encourages people to get outdoors, explore special places and take up a new challenge.

The team have devised a route in the shape of a figure of eight, so runners can choose to do half the circuit and run 5km, or do the full 10km loop route which takes you to the summit of Golden Cap with views across the south coast.

Elizabeth Flight, partnership and programming officer for North and West Dorset, said: “We’re really excited to be taking on the Trust10 here at Stonebarrow, it will be a great opportunity for people to have a regular goal each month, as well as a chance to explore this special place.

“We want as many people to enjoy their local environment as possible, so as well as hosting the Trust10 each month, the route itself will be open to all runners throughout the year.”

The Trust10 is held on the fourth Sunday of each month with the next on Sunday, August 28. The run starts at 9am, but please arrive by 8.50am for the briefing.

Participants can park at Stonebarrow car park (DT6 6SD,)and meet by the Old Radar Station – look out for the Trust10 flag. The Crazy Cow coffee trailer will be open for refreshments from 9am.
