Ultra Challenge – Jurassic Coast Challenge

Saturday 13 May 2023 - Sunday 14 May 2023

Walk, jog or run the Jurassic Coast Challenge for hospice care

25km / 50km or 100km challenge

Starting from the historic Corfe Castle, enjoy spectacular World Heritage coastline as you venture along the breath-taking Jurassic Coast towards Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door beyond, to the Weymouth halfway point. For 100km challengers, it’s past Portland Bill and the unique Chesil Beach to West Bay’s famous sandstone cliffs (of TV’s Broadchurch fame) – before a welcome finish line celebration in the vibrant Dorset town of Bridport. You’ll get full support and great hospitality all the way, leaving you to focus on your challenge! So, join the Jurassic Coast Challenge and make it an unforgettable weekend raising much-needed funds for Pilgrims Hospices.

Choosing to fundraise for Pilgrims Hospices with your walk, jog or run along the Jurassic Coast will support us in continuing to care for over 2,500 people each year who are facing an incurable illness across east Kent.

What’s included?

  • Hot meals, drinks and snacks en-route
  • Pace walkers, marshals, medics and massage
  • Fully signed route
  • Shuttle buses & transfers
  • Finisher’s medal, t-shirt and a glass of bubbly
  • Optional training walks & event app
  • Relay option and corporate packages available – round up your colleagues!

Fundraising options:

With 80% of our hospice funding coming through voluntary donations from our local community, the difference your support makes cannot be overstated. Every £25 that you raise could pay for another hour of specialist nursing care in one of our inpatient units.

Once you’ve decided on your challenge distance, there are three ways to fund your entry:

  • Self-funding – you pay the full cost of the event place with no minimum fundraising commitment – just raise as much as you can!
  • Charity sponsorship – you pay a reduced registration fee and, providing you reach the fundraising goal, Pilgrims will cover the cost of your event place
  • Mixed funding – you pay half of the event place cost yourself and, providing you reach the fundraising goal, Pilgrims will pay the balance of the event place cost

Please note: when taking part in Ultra Challenge events you are asked to pledge to raise a sponsorship target when registering for ‘charity sponsorship’ and ‘mixed funding’ options. The sponsorship target depends on the distance of your challenge – full challenge, half challenge or quarter challenge.
