Take on the spectacular Jurassic Coast challenge in 2021 – run, walk or jog this popular event to help end poverty and homelessness for Big Issue vendors.

The route starts at Poole Harbour after which it’s on to Corfe Castle, across to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, with ups & downs all the way to the Weymouth halfway. For 100km challengers it’s past Portland, along the end of Chesil Beach to West Bay’s famous sandstone cliffs (of TV’s Broadchurch) – before a finish line celebration in vibrant Bridport. With half & quarter distance options available, and full support all the way – there’s a challenge here for everyone!
