Starting from a tented village overlooking Poole Harbour it's around to Sandbanks, and a short ferry ride across to Studland (timed in & out to 'adjust' for any wait) - and 100km along the magnificent and varied Jurassic Coast to Weymouth at half way. Then on past Chesil Beach to the famous cliffs at West Bay - and a finish line in the vibrant Dorset town of Bridport. This will be a tough but unforgettable challenge with stunning coastal views, famous landmarks, and an unbelievable sense of achievement.
The 100km is broken down into 4 stages of between 20-33km, with a 'Major Rest Stop' at the end of each, stocked with plenty of food & drink, a covered marquee, medics & support teams. In between there are additional 'Mid Point Stops' with snacks & drinks and a full range of support services.
