How to get there
Freshwater is based just outside the small village of Burton Bradstock, accessed off the B3157, from the A35 at Bridport.
Bus services are still a bit disrupted due to the impact of Covid, so check what is available before travelling. The Jurassic Coaster service is operated by First Bus and goes between Poole and Axminster with a stop directly outside Freshwater, though you may have to change between different buses on the service.
The are three main railway lines that connect the Jurassic Coast area with London and the rest of the UK. The first runs from Weymouth through Dorchester, Wareham, Poole and onwards up to London Waterloo. The second runs further west and connects Exeter with London Waterloo.
A third line runs from Weymouth through Dorchester up towards Bristol. Visit National Rail Enquiries for more information.
Nearest train stations are Weymouth and Dorchester.
Nearest airport to the event is Exeter, 37 miles away from Freshwater. Offering a variety of international and domestic destinations if you’re travelling from further afield to join us.
For those who are local and don’t want to spend the weekend exploring the coastline, then we’ve partnered with Damory Coaches to put on shuttle buses to both Saturday start locations.
Saturday runners should park at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park (the finish location) and the buses will shuttle ultramarathon and marathon runners to their start locations.
Ultra runners to be on site and on the bus ready to leave at 6:30am
Marathon runners to be on site and on the bus ready to leave at 6:45am

You will see some spectacular sights while running the races. Afterwards, why not take a trip on the Jurassic Coaster, which hugs the coast on its journey? Lots of stopping off points along the way.
Just a few of the sights you might see along the route.
