Acerca de Jurassic Coast Challenge

Run, walk or crawl a marathon a day for 3 days along the stunning Jurassic Coastal Path.

Three marathons in 3 days is a format that is challenging but achievable by most. Runners, joggers and walkers all take on the challenge and start at different times each day. The routes each day are marked on issued maps but don’t require much navigation to follow as the coastal footpath is well marked along the way.

The marathon takes place in Dorset,  well known for its beautiful views and challenging hills. Each days route takes in a mixture of terrain from coastal footpath to beaches and tracks. It is a brutal, but beautiful race, taking runners 78.6 miles along coastal paths from Lyme Regis to Poole.

The diversity of the area is outstanding and the rugged coastline with serious climbs and descents will provide many a breathtaking view.

RESUMEN

The Jurassic Coast Line is well known for its spectacular views and challenging hills. Each day's route takes in a variety of terrain from coastal foot path to beaches and tracks. The exposed cliff sections allows runners to look back through 185 million years of time; dinosaur remains have been found here, and it’s a fossil-hunter’s paradise. With a more recent history of mining, shipwrecks and smuggling, this is a fascinating stretch of coastline. Runners may take in some of its most spectacular scenery, from the clear blue sea to the rugged cliffs and green hills inland, to the beautiful circular Lulworth Cove, as they continually climb and descend the steep hills of the Jurassic Coast.
