Jurassic Coast Challenge

Date: 13th /14th May 2023

Join the team

Join 2,000 adventurers of all experience levels and ages and Walk, Jog or Run the spectacular Jurassic Coast-a World Heritage Site. Starting from Corfe Castle, the route heads to Swanage, then along to Lulworth Cove, past Durdle Door, with ups and downs all the way to the Weymouth halfway point.

With Half and Quarter distance options also, with full support and great hospitality all the way-there’s a challenge here for everyone!

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.

Emma and Anna tell us why they took on a challenge for Dementia UK:

The walk was both emotionally and physically challenging.  But I can’t explain how lovely the support was around. Locals left out chairs with rest stops, with glasses of water and oranges; not to mention the moral support from the other people taking part.
