Lace up your hiking boots and take on the iconic Jurassic Coast Challenge!

With an undulating route throughout, this is certainly one of the tougher events in the Ultra Challenge series. But with stunning coastal views and a big medal at the end, it’ll be worth every step!

About

Start the 100km challenge in Corfe Castle before heading down to the world-famous Jurassic Coast. You’ll be supported with a fully signed route and multiple pitstops as you hike past Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and the stunning Chesil Beach before arriving in Bridport for a well-deserved celebration.

The other distance options follow sections of the same course and are guaranteed to give the ‘ultra-experience’, with stunning views and world-class support throughout.

The route

From Corfe Castle, the route heads down to Swanage, and along through Lulworth Cove, past Durdle Door, with ups & downs to Weymouth at half way. For 100km challengers, it’s past Portland Bill, Chesil Beach, and on to West Bay’s cliffs (of TV’s Broadchurch) – before a finish line celebration in the vibrant Dorset town of Bridport.
