New Lulworth Castle 10k added to Purbeck Trail Series

by Press Release
Friday 10th June 2016
Now in its third year, The Purbeck Trail Series is expanding with the addition of the Lulworth Castle 10k. This joins the five other races in the series, offering a variety of distances across stunning countryside and passing many outstanding sights. 
The Series is open to all runners who can score points by entering at least one of the six races with a maximum of four events counting towards the final score. A runner’s best four events count if they complete five or six races. There is also a club/team prize for mixed teams of the highest-scoring two men and two women from each club in each race. Points awarded for a runner’s position in the whole field so there is always an incentive to beat the person in front. There are also age group prizes. 
The six events that comprise the Purbeck Trail Series are as follows:
Lulworth Castle 10k - 14th August
Studland Fun Run 5k - 28th August
The Beast - 4th September
The Purbeck Marathon - 18th September
The Black Hill 10k - 25th September
Studland Stampede 12k - 9th October
Purbeck Trail Series ongoing scores will be posted with a link from each participating race’s Web site. At the end of the series and when points have been tallied for runners’ best three events there is a range of age categories for men and women where prizes can be won. The results will be announced and prizes allocated after the Studland Stampede at approximately 1pm. 
There are no additional costs to enter the Purbeck Trail Series other than the races’ standard entry fees. Runners entering any of the events will automatically score points for the Purbeck Trail Series. 
A spokesperson for the Purbeck Trail Series stated:
“We are delighted to add an extra event into The Purbeck Trail Series for 2016. The Series is proving to be very popular and it adds an extra fun element to the events.”
Entries should be made to the individual races through their relevant Web sites or other specified entry routes.
