Lulworth Cove Trail Running Challenge

Lulworth Cove, Jurassic Coast, Dorset

Organiser's Description

We are very excited to return with this event for 2020 at Lulworth Cove in Dorset, one of the most beautiful and recognisable stretches of coastline in the country, situated right on the South West Coast Path.

Starting at the Durdle Door overflow car park, it’s a beautiful place to begin this trail running challenge.

All four distances will take on this stretch of coastline, almost all the way to Weymouth – the 10K runners won’t make it this far, turn off half way along and climb away from the coast to find the higher coastal path before heading back to Lulworth and the finish.

Canicross friendly.
