The stunning setting

You’ll set off from Poole Harbour, then venture along the spectacular Jurassic Coast – a World Heritage Site since 2001. Through Lulworth Cove to the Weymouth half way point, then past Portland Bill and the unique Chesil Beach to West Bay's famous cliffs (of TV's Broadchurch fame) – before a finish line celebration in the vibrant town of Bridport.

Take on the full 100km distance with 2,660m of climb or choose half the distance. You can also choose the 24km option from Poole to Norden Farm.

You’ll be fully supported on the day, with excellent food and rest stops during your trek.
