Jurassic Coast Challenge routes


Dorset's Jurassic Coast is an amazing setting for perhaps the toughest event within the Ultra Challenge Series. A Poole Harbour start, on to Corfe Castle, and then the sharp ups & downs as the coastal path sweeps through Lulworth Cove and rises above the iconic Durdle Door en route to Weymouth - at the end of an epic 1st 'half'. A flatter 2nd half - with Chesil Beach, nature reserves, and sandstone cliffs at West Bay - before the finish in Bridport. 100km & nearly 2,700 metres of climb - a real challenge!
