Jurassic Express Half Marathon

4th February, 2023 at 9:00 am

Calling all runners – to a brand new trail run on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, starting from Swanage.

Choose from a half marathon or a 16km medium run – both trails set off from the beachfront at Swanage, following routes with fantastic views of the Jurassic coastline, including Old Harry Rocks & Studland, and ending at Corfe Castle.

When you’ve completed your run you have the option to return to Swanage on a private steam train on the heritage Swanage Railway line.

This is a marshalled event with on-course refreshments and first aid cover.
Event medals, running cups and neck buffs await you at the finish line in Corfe.

– Start time, medium (16km) – 9.15am

– 22km run – £40
– 16km run – £29.50
– Return train ticket – £8 (booked at the same time as race entry)
