The Jurassic Coast is famed for its undulations. With quite possibly more up then down the terrain is challenging to say the least. Very steep rocky cliff paths, shingle, sand, mud and some tarmac if you are lucky. The first section of the route starts aggressively with a climb up Golden Cap early on then levels out for a nice stroll along Chesil Bank. Then through the lovely flat sea side resort of Weymouth then it really starts: Osmington Mills, Ringstead Bay, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Tyneham village finishing at Kimmeridge Bay. The last 3rd of the route is probably the wildest of the lot passing over Chapmans Pool, St Aldhelms Head and Dancing Ledge before hauling you up and over Ballard Down to tip your hat to Old Harry rocks, finishing at Shell Bay, Studland. For a sneaky peek at the route and what’s in store for you have a look at the 2007 video. The link is on the top right hand side of this page. Obviously you don’t have the luxury of doing the route in 3 days like the Jurassic Coast Challenge runners.
The event is self navigation. You must be able to use a map and compass effectively. A large part of the running is done at night along the cliff paths. There is a inherent danger to any one entering this event. You must be 100% confident in your ability to operate effectively through the night and in to the next day.
You have to maintain a average speed of just over 3 mph to complete the distance in 24hrs. Check point cut off times will be calculated and published before the event. If you are late for a check point you will be removed from the race.
