Weymouth Half Marathon filmed from Aaran House
Half Marathon races started in Weymouth a few years ago, as part of the Iron Man events. Now in its 5th year, the 20.3 kilometre race took place in June. The course ran from Lodmoor, around the town and seafront and back to Weymouth Pavilion, just 50 yards away.
Just Racing sponsor the event. Up to 1500 competitors take part and there are numerous water and feedig stations around the course. In the Iron Man races, the athletes swim 2 km and cycle about 110km around local villages, before entering the running stage. Weymouth is fast becoming a mecca for Marathons and Fun Runs.
