THE first-ever Purbeck Marathon was hailed a great success and first place went to Bournemouth’s Steve Way , who celebrated his first ever marathon victory.
The race was staged on Sunday over trails and pathways and featured a gruelling 2,500ft of climbing.
Steve Way, 38, of Bournemouth Athletic Club, came first with a time of 2 hours 50 minutes.
Race Director Martin Payne, from Kimmeridge, said: “It went like clockwork and we already have a date of September 15 for next year.”
Profits go to the Swanage Carnival.
