The Jurassic trail is not only a visually spectacular run along the Jurassic coast but also a challenge that some would class as undulating. The run has three route distance options and dependent on your choice depends on how much of a challenge you will have.
Starting just next to Marsh barn, (registration / finish area) in the old pitch and putt gravel area the trail run takes us from the start to a short, sharp (small) hill and then through the beautiful West Dorset golf club before we head for Freshwater caravan park, its flat and footpath for the first 3 km (Apart from the small hill near the start).
Once through Freshwater we stay on the footpath and head for the aid station, with a selection of interesting delights, cake, peanuts, oranges, bananas, water, energy drink and squash.
When your ready you follow the route of the Jurassic coastal path along the edge of the sea and you return to West Bay (Marsh Barn) along the Jurassic cliffs, and the views along the coastline.
The true distance is 5.4 km, this is to ensure everyone finishes in the same place.
Part of the event is along the cliff path that runs from Burton Bradstock to West Bay, you are responsible for your own safety along this path, be mindful that its a cliff and run with caution.
At the aid station if you want a drink or something to eat you must stop and do so, this event is a challenge and not classed as a race, the minute it takes you to stop and hydrate correctly will enable you to complete the challenge in a timely manner.
