Jurassic Quarter 201720/05/2017
Relay Team of Four
[All event updates will be posted here].
The Jurassic Quarter is an undulating 46 mile Ultra Marathon along the South West Coast Path in the UK. The course covers almost half of England's only natural World Heritage Site, The Jurassic Coast.
The task is brutally simple: to run non-stop from Portland Bill Lighthouse to the eastern end of the Jurassic Coast at Old Harry Rocks.
This challenge can be undertaken as a solo, relay team of two or relay of four. The atmosphere is of keen and friendly rivalry.
Following 46 miles of mesmerising coastline there are innumerable steep climbs and descents. This is the ultimate trail runner's rush. Be under no mistake, every runner must be well prepared both mentally and physically.

An optional bus service is available to transport solo participants from near to the finish location to the start location early on the event morning. This enables solo participants to take part without having to bring a driver or support person. When you get to the finish your car will be close at hand - a big bonus after a tough day.
If you are using the pre-event transport please follow postcode BH19 3BA and follow the marshals instructions upon arrival.
Booking for the bus will close at midday on Sunday 1st May, or sooner if capacity is reached. Please do not delay in making your plans.
This service is an optional extra and costs £19. It is highly recommended and will improve your event experience.
