Jurassic Coast Challenge

Jurassic Coast Challenge 2022

One of our most popular challenges returns on Saturday 17th September 2022, with your choice of a 13 or 26 mile route along the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

Sign up today!


Every step makes a difference

Take in the spectacular coastline of Dorset, with your choice of a 13 mile or 26 mile route.  You could take on the distance you choose individually, with family members or friends, or you could even get a team together from your workplace or other organisation you belong to.

The 26 mile trekkers will start at the iconic Durdle Door, and walk along the Jurassic coastline towards Worth Matravers where they will be joined by the 13 mile trekkers, and then it’s onto the finish line at Studland, with views of Old Harry Rocks and well earned celebratory refreshments.

This stretch of coastline is, of course, renowned for its natural beauty, being a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Throughout the day, you’ll be soaking in the sights of the sea, the cliffs and rock structures, and Dorset countryside.

Weldmar’s dedicated team of event fundraisers will support you all the way, from the moment you sign up to the step that takes you across the finish line, and there is a very achievable minimum fundraising target.

Every penny raised from your sponsorship goes towards helping adults in Dorset who are living with a life limiting illness, providing them with specialist care, and support to their loved ones.
