About the event

The Challenge begins with a Poole Harbour start, before heading along the spectacular Jurassic Coast - a World Heritage Site since 2001. Through Lulworth Cove and past Durdle Door, it's up and down all the way to the Weymouth halfway point. From there, head past Portland Bill, beyond nature reserves and onto the western end of the unique Chesil Beach to West Bay's famous cliffs (of TV's Broadchurch fame). You'll cross then cross the finish line for a 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!
