Round the Rock started life in 2008 as the RMPAC Silver Jubilee 10k, after which it was decided to hold the race on an annual basis, with the new name of Round the Rock voted for by club members.
The race starts and finishes at the Blues Club Grove Road, Portland. This is the home ground of Portland United Football Club, where parking, toilets and changing facilities are available. To get there by road head for Weymouth then follow the signs for Portland on the A354. Follow the main road to the top of Portland to the Heights Hotel roundabout. Go straight across the roundabout (second exit) to Easton. After approximately 300 yards you will pass the Chesil Beach Motors Garage and the Recycling Center which will be on your left. Once you have passed them take the next turning on the left, which is Grove Road. The PUFC ground is approximately 300 yards on your left. If using a Satnav enter the postcode DT5 1DP.
If you are travelling by bus catch the Route 1 service from the Kings Statue, Weymouth and ask for the Grove Corner stop. PUFC ground is approx. 300 yards along Grove Rd on the left.
The route is undulating, predominately on tarmac roads and pavements, and takes you around the top of the Isle of Portland in a figure of eight, with a short loop of two and a half kilometers and a longer loop of seven and a half kilometers.
From the Blues you run up Grove Road, around the back of the YOI and then back down Grove Road. At the end of Grove Road turn left, go down Easton, down Wakeham and then along Southwell Street and into Southwell. From here the uphill climb starts, up Avalanche, Weston and Wide Street to the Heights. Then it’s round the back of the Heights and downhill (you will be pleased to hear!) to Easton lane and back to Grove Corner where you take a left turn and run back up Grove road to the finish which is back at the Blues club.
The race start and finish is at the Blues Club Grove Road, Portland. See the map at http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1697849543 for a more details.
