Jurassic Express Trail Run

🗓️ Saturday 9th March 2024

The Jurassic Express Trail Run is back for its second year.

The run starts in Swanage and finishes at Corfe Castle, with stunning coastal views of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast along the way.

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 and Studland Bay.

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.

It’s a timed event, with water stations en route, and a maximum of 600 runners.

Event medals and finishers’ present await you at the finish line in Corfe.
