It was nice to see that our efforts were appreciated. The Dorset's Doddle is now attracting a good entry every year from both LDWA members and trail runners. I suspect that the incredibly scenic linear route and challenging but "do-able" distance must contribute. You may also be interested to learn that the same organisers are now working to make the Dorset Giant 100K a really special, not to be missed event in April 2007 with an amazing (new)route, fabulously luxurious checkpoints, cordon bleu food

Anquet gives a total ascent of about 8,000 ft for that section of the SWCP (based on the 1:50,000 maps) - I daresay the organisers may have a more accurate figure.

I don't think there's been a hundred, but there is the 100Km Dorset Giant every 3 years. The next running is in April 2007 - the entry form is already available on http://www.btinternet.com/~hardy.annual/dorsetgiant.htm.

First time I’ve done this one and a great day out; many thanks to all the people involved in organising it. And the weather was perfect with a cooling breeze and then sunshine later on. Does anyone know how much ascent there is on this route? Certainly seemed a lot and no doddle! Hope I’ve got the name right, Dorset’s Doddle or is it the Dorset Doddle? There’s never been a 100 in Dorset has there? There is plenty of scope for a cracking route - the inland walking is good too. Anyone wanting to sample it could try Steven Crockford’s new Round Dorset Walk (see recent News item.
