David Lydall has been on a challenging run in a lovely part of the country and sends this report: While visiting family in Dorset I took the opportunity to try one of the trail runs down south.  It seemed superficially somewhat similar to the Alnwick Harriers’ Coastal run, incorporating both a castle and some coast. …
