M12K Road Race Raises £5,700 For St Greg’s Primary in Marnhull


On Sunday 3rd April St Greg’s Primary school were finally able to host the M12K road race. Having been deferred due to covid since 2020 it was a mighty relief to see runners gracing our undulating roads. The race was proudly part of the Dorset Road League fixtures for 2022 and so attracted a good field. The roads around Marnhull offer a decent challenge, with runners having to either run up or down most of the way.

250 runners started the race in perfect conditions – so perfect that the ladies course record was smashed by local runner and Dorset Doddler; Molly Rasch, with a blistering 46:09 Lee Dempster of Twemlow Track Club won the race in a terrific time of 41:21.
Tom Hawtree of Marnhull Stores was the honorary starter, having sponsored this year’s race. A Marnhull spokesman said ”We are very thankful for Tom’s continued support of the school. Our other sponsors and prize donors all deserve a mention as without them the race would not be the financial success it is:
Thomas Fudge’s, Hall & Woodhouse, The Dorset Dairy Company, Marnhull Festival, Dorset Doddlers, Dorset
Tech, Friars Moor Vets, Camelot Builders, Wyke Farms, Compton Smith Interiors, AJN Steel, Toyota Somerset County Cars, Cooks Garage, MG Maintenance & Building and Hook Electrical Contractors.
