Jurassic Express Half Marathon

🗓️ Saturday 4th February 2023

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

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.
