Race Guide
Hardy Way Marathon

Date / Time
Sunday, January 2, 2022
Length 26.20 miles (42.2 km)

This is a self-supported ‘Geo Tracks’ self-navigation run/walk using a GPS tracker. 

Runners and walkers can use either the Geo Tracks navigation smartphone app (works in conjunction with the GPS tracker) or upload the course GPX files into their own device.  

Participants will receive their GPS tracker via the post, follow the course and then return the tracker at the finish drop-off point. 

Times and GPS traces go up on the leaderboard where you can compare times and playbacks from other participants.


The Hardy Way Trail Marathon is a journey through some of the most unspoiled parts of Dorset. The trail is linked with the works of a great writer, Thomas Hardy (1840-1928). Starting at the Mordon Bog Nature Reserve in Wareham Forest the route passes through Wareham, Corfe Castle, Kimmeridge then on to the coastal footpath all the way to Lulworth. Be warned... the hills get a bit hilly on the coast path…

For the most part, the course follows the hardy Way Trail but in some areas it does differ where our route stays on footpaths on public rights of way.
