Join a Jurassic adventure for St Catherine's Hospice
Published: 21 Dec 2022
St Catherine’s Hospice is calling on walkers to join its trek team along the iconic Jurassic Coast taking place from 7 -9 July 2023.
The marathon distance trek will cover 26.2 miles across two days, with 14 miles on Sat 8 July and 12.2 miles on Sunday 9 July. The route is from Lulworth Cove to Studland along the beautiful coastal path with stunning views out to sea and the surrounding landscape.
Accommodation will be provided in a campsite in Worth Matravers. All food and refreshments will be provided throughout the weekend and walkers will be able to walk with a small daypack, leaving their belongings safely at the campsite.
The Jurassic Coast was England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Situated in southern England, it stretches 95 miles from Orcombe Point to Old Harry Rocks within the counties of Dorset and Devon and offers gorgeous scenery, brilliant beaches and quaint towns steeped in history.
Registration for the event costs £95 and there are several options for sponsorship.
Emma Butler, Fundraiser at St Catherine’s said, “We are so excited to be organising our first ever Jurassic Coast trek. It’s wonderful to be able to bring our fantastic supporters together to experience a special weekend away of fresh air, beautiful views and the knowledge that every step they take will be helping St Catherine’s provide vital end of life and palliative care to individuals and their families, at the toughest of times.”
