Jurassic Coast Challenge

Run, walk or crawl a marathon a day for 3 days along the stunning Jurassic Coastal Path. 3 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 event is facilitated at the HQ area which is also the finish point of day 1. Meals, massage, shop, and briefing are all located at the HQ. Shuttle buses to and from the official challenge accommodation will be provided throughout the day. The votwo team will take care of everything at the event for you so all you need to concentrate on is completing the distance each day.
