Jurassic Coast Challenge

The original date has moved by a week to comply with the timeline for the easing of Covid lockdown – with a changed start venue as the Poole Harbour ferry crossing remains restricted.

You can now take on the spectacular Jurassic Coast from our NEW start venue in CORFE CASTLE, on a great route which loops down to Swanage, then across to Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door, with ups & downs to the Weymouth halfway stop. For 100 km challengers it’s along the end of Chesil Beach to West Bay’s famous cliffs (of TV’s Broadchurch) with a finish line celebration in vibrant Bridport. 

You’ll get full support & hospitality – and with half, marathon, and quarter distance options available – there’s a Jurassic Coast Challenge for everyone, and a most welcome return to the trails!
