We couldn’t help but notice that runners like their food and they like summer. So we thought ‘let’s have a picnic, but let’s make them work for it!’. Here’s the deal:
Brief route descriptions: 20km route Begins at Steeple Leaze Farm Heads south to the South West Coastal Path Then heading east on the path you pass Kimmeridge, Kingston, Corfe, north of Church Knowle and west of Steeple before returning to Steeple Leaze Farm.
40km All the above and then on the South West Coastal Path head west along the cliff top passing Kimmeridge Bay, Hobarrow Bay, Brandy Bay, Worbarrow Bay, Mupe Bay - then turn around and come back.
50km All the above with South West Coastal Path leading you into Lulworth Cove and then through Lulworth and the Heritage Centre. Through the car park and up the long set of steps to into West Lulworth, passing St Oswald’s Bay and finally reaching Durdle Door and the 35km turn around point but not before descending to the bottom of the steps and taking a photo by way of evidence of reaching this monumental point of your 50km journey. Turn around and come back.
