This tough 12k follows beautiful coastal tracks and sandy beaches and enjoys stunning views of Brownsea Island, Old Harry Rocks and, on a clear day, the Isle of Wight. The course is off-road with the exception of two road crossings. The reassuring flat and picturesque location can be deceiving, as a challenging sandy stretch to the finish line will be a drain on reserves.
