Running the Jurassic Coast

Guy Kerr from the Jurassic Coast Trust said:

"The Jurassic Coast is very excited about Run Jurassic 2020. We expect it to be a fabulous weekend celebrating everything that's special about our World Heritage Site.

"We encourage both seasoned runners and new participants to come along and have a go - it's a great way to build health and fitness while having a brilliant time."

Run Jurassic 2020

The Jurassic Trust is encouraging participants to register as official JCT Fundraisers. They have a target of £220 each to raise before the end of September and will receive a Run Jurassic pack including a specially designed t-shirt. 

Money raised will go towards the Trust's work in protecting and engaging people with the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. 

Donations from last year's Run Jurassic event exceeded £3,000 and the Trust is hoping to raise even more in 2020.
