Event Description

The Jurassic Coast Trek, sponsored by Holton Homes, is back! Discover the UK’s first natural UNESCO World Heritage Site on a challenging 13 or 26 mile trek along Dorset’s stunning coastline.

The 26 mile trek will set off from the beautiful horseshoe bay of Lulworth Cove. You will follow the rugged coastline with some serious climbs and descents, providing breath-taking views and dramatic cliff top vistas. The 13 mile trek will join at picturesque Worth Matravers where you will make your way along one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path. The trek finishes in the magnificent grounds of Harry Warren House, offering stunning views over Old Harry Rocks and Studland’s famous sandy beaches. Celebrate with a delicious hog roast and glass of prosecco, which will be waiting for you at the finish line!

If you would like to leave your car at the finish, there will be transport available from Studland before the start of the trek. There will also be transfers available to and from Wareham train station. Transfers are to be booked in advance for £5.00 per person.

Registration fees

13 miles                £25

26 miles                £30

Your registration fee helps towards the costs of organising the event.  It’s the money you raise that helps us to pay for the care and comfort of a local child and their family.

We would love all our trekkers to raise a minimum of £200. This will pay for seven hours care for a poorly child, and respite for an exhausted mum or dad – a chance for them to have a break or catch up on those little everyday tasks the rest of us take for granted. 

The route

The Jurassic Coast Trek has two routes. The mighty 13 mile trek and mammoth 26 mile trek, both finishing in the picturesque grounds of Harry Warren House, recently featured as Aunt Juley’s House in the BBC adaptation of Howard’s End.

The Jurassic Coast is well known for its spectacular views and challenging hills. The route will take in a variety of terrain with some very steep uphill and downhill sections but you will be rewarded with breath-taking views.
