This year the three routes on offer, Long, Middle and Short, are certainly no exception to that rule. There are a handful of steep climbs as you make your way along the Jurassic Classic route, with the highest point being a 1.8km, 7% average gradient section up along the Lulworth Range. With the efforts of the climbs come the rewards of some spectacular coastal views down over Warbarrow and Kimmeridge Bay. As well as the well-earned sweeping descents as you make your way around the Purbeck Hills. Keep your eyes open for the historical structures that line the routes as you pass by Lulworth and Corfe Castle, and make sure you don’t forget to smile for our photographers! Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finisher medal and other goodies from our partners. We look forward to seeing you in June and remember with three different routes to choose from, there's something for everyone!

This event is part of The Jurassic Classic.
