Following the event in Seville, we thought it was time to get to know the Purple people across the UK so we got together with a local running Marathon event and created the Purbeck NW Marathon and a shorter but equally hard 16 mile challenge. To make sure all levels felt welcome we also added a few themed walks in the area as a starting point but as bookings flooded in, we kept adding more! Eventually we had 70 led walks over 3 days with themes such as geology, history and even cream teas. To top it all we added an Instructor forum too!
