The Jurassic trail is not only a visually spectacular run along the Jurassic coast but also a challenge that some would class as undulating. The run has four route options and dependent on your choice depends on how much of a challenge you will have.

5km
Starting just next to Marsh barn, in the old pitch and putt gravel area the trail run takes us through the beautiful golf club and onto freshwater its flat for the first 3 km which is where the Aid station is located, after this the route follows the Jurassic coastal path through freshwater and you return to West Bay (Marsh Barn) along the Jurassic cliffs, and the views along the coastline.

10km
Again Starting just next to Marsh barn, in the old pitch and putt gravel area the trail run takes us through the beautiful golf club and onto freshwater its flat for the first 3 km which is where the first Aid station is located, after this the route follows the Jurassic coastal path out to Hive beach, Burton Bradstock, before we head westwards and then follow the path back to the Aid station at 8 km, its cliff path, and sea views all the way back to West Bay (Marsh Barn) along the Jurassic cliffs.

Half Marathon 21.1km
The Half marathon is a test in places and not to be taken lightly , starting just next to Marsh barn, in the old pitch and putt gravel area the trail run takes us through the beautiful golf club and onto freshwater its flat for the first 3 km which is where the First Aid station is located, after this we meet our first hill, its short and sharp.
At the top we get our first glimpse of the sea before we head for Burton Bradstock's hive beach, once through the fields, we follow the coastline and head inland for a km, and the second feed at 10 km before heading back towards Hive beach, its all downhill and is track and trail.
We link back up with the 10 km route here and head towards the third feed at 17 km, this is when the fun really begins, once on the cliff path, you will realize why we have chosen this location,
its simply breathtaking, and the views (If there is no mist) are to die for, Its the Jurassic coast at its most superb.
The first parts of the Half are relatively flat but its the Jurassic coast so at some point its an up and down challenge that is not for the faint hearted.

Marathon 42.2km
An addition to the 2019 event will see us add a full trail marathon, its tough, very tough, and the cut off at 18.5 km will be strictly enforced,
but for those that are up for the challenge, come and run spectacular scenery.

Combine trail running and the magic of music in this inspirational 3-day trip into the best of the British countryside. With the outstanding beauty of The Gower Peninsula as your backdrop, you'll explore beaches, cliffs, coastal trails, ancient woodland and dunes on day & night-time guided runs.

Revel in the best trail running has to offer, while only four kilometres away from the festival site you can explore Rhossili Bay, officially named the UK's best beach. Guided trail runs from as short as 3km all the way up to 60km, with varied pace groups, means there is something for everyone and all abilities.

Get involved in the beer mile relay, the legendary pub crawl run, secret adventures, treasure hunts & wild swims, among other adrenaline-spiking activities like surfing before you ease off with some well deserved wellness activities; from outdoor yoga sessions through to an invigorating soak in the open air hot tubs.

At night, settle by the crackling fire of the Campfire Stage and listen to a host of inspirational talks from a carefully curated line-up of adventure athletes, explorers & thought leaders, then let go to the sound of live music and DJs as the sun falls and the stars come out.

Starting from the beautiful village of Langsett, this new and exciting race will twist and wind you through some of the most scenic forest trails in the Peak District National park.

From there you will hit a single track that changes in elevation several times, from the top of this climb you will be greeted to a spectacular technical decent which will land you right into the heart of the Derwent valley.

With gentle rolling tracks along the Derwent water, you will eventually be hit head-on with some tough gritty climbs onto the outer edges of the Derwent valley.

This will lead you to the final climb onto the last ridge before you descend back to the finish for a well-earned cuppa!!!!

Navigation skills essential, lower parts of the course will be marked. A GPX file will be available to download and map of the route will be available on the website to print also the map will be handed out at registration.

The Bridport Dagger now in its third year and growing into one of the toughest most challenging yet visually stunning cycle Sportives in the South West.

This beautiful and stunning tour around the Dorset countryside is about taking your time, taking in the views and just enjoying the ride, it has lots of long running straights away from large amounts of traffic where you can "Peleton" if that's your thing, we have climbed, some tough, some not so, all on Strava (tut tut), and then there are country lanes with stunning views that go for miles, above all remember its a sportive and not a race, your supposed to enjoy it and have fun.

A return of the popular powder fun from 2016 and 2017, gets entrants covered from head to toe in a variety of colours at various points of the course. Oh, and did we mention it's not even a run? You can choose to walk, skip or hop your way around if you feel like it. Its all about the fun and what gives you the biggest smiles!

It's not timed or really a proper run, its more for fun and we would encourage you to raise money for local charities, charities that normally don't have large-scale donations. So not only will you have great fun, get a really cool medal but you can help local good causes as well!

A return of the bouncy castle, face painting, food and drink, Its going to be a fun packed day, we strongly encourage you to bring blanket and just chill in the sun, hopefully it will build into another great community event, with your help that is.

Please share the event via social media, and lets make it a great event.
