About the Jurassic Coast Challenge

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the 2019 Jurassic Coast Challenge. We will be back next year with an even bigger team! Registration for the 2020 Jurassic Coast Challenge will open in September so please check back then.

A Poole Harbour start, then along the spectacular Jurassic Coast - a World Heritage Site since 2001. Through Lulworth Cove, past Durdle Door it's up and down all the way to the Weymouth halfway point. Then it's past Portland Bill, past nature reserves and then onto the western end of the unique Chesil Beach to West Bay's famous cliffs (of TV's Broadchurch fame) - before a welcome finish line celebration in the vibrant town of Bridport. You'll get full support and great hospitality all the way - leaving you to focus on this epic challenge!

Push yourself further - 100km Full Challenge, with Half & Quarter options also available.

You can use this interactive map to view the routes.
