two trekkers by the sea taking on the Jurassic coast challenge

Jurassic Coast Challenge

Date: 22nd/23rd May

Join 2,000 adventurers of all experience levels & ages and Walk, Jog or Run the spectacular Jurassic Coast- a world heritage site. Starting from Corfe Castle, the first 25km of the route will loop out to the coastline and back again. From there, it’s across the to Lulworth Cove, past Durdle Door, with ups and downs all the way to the Weymouth halfway point.

For 100km challengers-it’s past Portland Bill, nature reserves, along the western end of Chesil Beach to West Bay’s famous cliffs (of TV’s Broadchurch fame) – before a finish line celebration in vibrant Bridport. With half & quarter distance options also, with full support and great hospitality all the way, there’s a challenge here for everyone.

Difficulty: Moderate – Tough

No matter which distance you choose, you will receive full support from the Action Challenge team – hospitality and plenty of rest stops throughout your trek, as well as a celebratory finishers’ meal and massage. So all you need to do is focus on reaching that finish line and raising funds to help families facing dementia.

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.
