Votwo's signature endurance running event the Jurassic Coast Challenge
returns to the Dorset coast path for 2011. A 26.2 mile marathon each
day for 3 days running, jogging, walking or crawling from Shell Bay to Charmouth along beautiful but brutal coastal terrain. A true test of
fitness and determination for those who find modern life just a little
bit too comfortable. Heed the warning: The cowardly won't start and
the weak won't finish. If all three days sound a bit much to much then runners are welcome to join us just for a day or two.
Day one, Shell Bay - Lulworth Cove
Day two, Lulworth Cove - Portland Ferry Road
Day three, Portland Ferry Road - Charmouth

The mother of all hilly runs. The 2011 course is being run in reverse to previous years.
Day one starts off with a pleasant jog along the beach of Studland Bay, past Old Harry rocks , through Swanage and straight into some tough coastal running along the South West Coast Path. Houns – tout Cliff provides the first real climb of the day followed by more climbing on Tyenham Cap and Worbarrow. The finish of the First day is Lulworth Cove where you will be treated to a sneak preview of the next days ‘warm up’ climb beginning day 2.
Day two sees runners (and walkers) enjoy the delights of Durdle Door with steep ascents and descents. The course starts to level off half way in to Day 2 after Ringstead Bay. Weymouth hosts some path appreciated tarmac underfoot followed by a enjoyable lap of Portland to warm down on before finishing at the Event HQ on the Ferry bridge road between Weymouth and Portland.
Day three starts with a challenging and muddy underfoot course along costal foot path towards Abbotsbury. Fairly flat ground for the next 10km until Eype’s mouth then the hilly fun starts again as the course approaches Golden Cap. Its then a short jog to the finish point just to the East of Charmouth.
