Jurassic Coast Challenge
Walk, jog or run 100km along the stunning Jurassic Coast, England’s first Natural World Heritage Site.
Stretching from Old Harry Rocks in Dorset to Orcombe Point in East Devon, the Jurassic Coast is the most geologically diverse coastline in the world.
The exposed cliff sections allow you to look back through 185 million years of time; dinosaur remains have been found here, and it’s a fossil-hunter’s paradise. With a more recent history of mining, shipwrecks and smuggling, this is a fascinating stretch of coastline.
Starting at Poole Harbour, you will take in some of Dorest and Devon's most spectacular scenery, from the renowned natural stone archway of Durdle Door to the beautiful circular Lulworth Cove before a finish line celebration in vibrant Bridport.
There are also half and quarter distance options available if you feel the full 100km is a bit too far.
Why should you sign up?
In addition to a Mental Health Foundation t-shirt, a fundraising pack and bespoke support from our Events Team, there are also some other great incentives too to sign up for this fantastic challenge, including:
- Optional training walks.
- Free food and drink during the weekend.
- Eight covered rest stops.
