About the Jurassic Coast Challenge

This exciting challenge will have you trekking either 20km or 30km along the famous Jurassic Coast in a single day.

Starting from the coastal town of Swanage for the 30km walk or St Aldhelms Head for the 20km walk, you’ll trek your way along the beautiful Jurassic Coast, a famous World Heritage Site on the south coast. Catering for all abilities, the 20km walk is still tough, taking up to 8 hours to complete, whilst the more challenging 30km walk can take up to 12 hours.

Whether this is the first time you've attended a trekking event or you're a veteran, join us for a great day out and help us to make a real difference to autistic people and their families.

A team of experienced mountain guides will be with you every step of the way, giving you advice and making sure you stay safe for the entirety of the walk. A base level of fitness with prior training is required to take part in this challenge and training tips will also be provided.
