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.

Air

Nearest Airport to the event is Exeter, 37 miles away from Freshwater. With a variety of international and domestic destinations if you are travelling from further afield to join us.

Shuttle Service

For those that are local and don’t want to spend the weekend exploring the coast line then we have partnered with Damory Coaches to put on shuttle coaches to the various locations.

So all Saturday runners should park at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park and then buses will shuttle Ultra and Marathon runners to their start locations.

Ultra Runners to be on site at and on the bus ready to leave at 6:30am

Marathon Runners to be on site at and on the bus ready to leave at 6:45am
