If you’re looking for a physically challenging trek, then get a team of friends, work colleagues or walking buddies together and join us for our scenic trek along the Jurassic coast on Saturday 13 June.
The Jurassic Coast is England’s first Natural World Heritage Site and makes for a stunning trek. The event is based out of the lovely seaside town of Swanage where you will experience some of the most breath-taking scenery the south coast has to offer before passing the iconic Corfe Castle whose first stone was laid over 1,000 years ago. This event will not disappoint.
You’ll be required to train and complete the challenge as a group, teams can be as small as 3 and as large as 6, and you can chose to do either the 50km or 25km route. Once you’ve signed up, you can let us know the distance you’d like to take on.
