      About the event

      The Jurassic Coast Challenge will give you a weekend to remember. It will be rewarding, fun, and absolutely achievable with your resolve and determination!

      Starting from a tented village overlooking Poole Harbour the Jurassic Coast Challenge takes you around to Sandbanks, and a short ferry ride across to Studland (timed in & out to 'adjust' for any wait) and 100km along the magnificent and varied Jurassic Coast to Weymouth at half way.

      It will then take you on past Chesil Beach to the famous cliffs at West Bay – and a finish line in the vibrant Dorset town of Bridport. This will be a tough but unforgettable challenge with stunning coastal views, famous landmarks, and an unbelievable sense of achievement.
