The Jurassic Coast Challenge is one of the toughest events in the Ultra Challenge Series - with 2,600m of climb across the 100km, an epic undertaking. Those who take it on will be rewarded by brilliant views and a route that's simply stunning.
Setting out from Poole Harbour, we board the Sandbanks ferry to Studland before heading to Corfe Castle, where the 1st Quarter Challenge ends. Those on the 1st Half will be tackling the ups and downs of Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, en route to Weymouth at the 58km rest stop.
The full Challenge continues on to the far end of Chesil Beach, then down into West Bay with its famous sandstone cliffs, before reaching the welcome finish line in Bridport where a celebration awaits.
