Charmouth Challenge : CANCELLED FOR 2020
04 July 2020
We are very sorry but due to the current situation the Charmouth Challenge has been cancelled for 2020
The Race and Course
The Charmouth Challenge (now in its 38th year) is a chip timed 8-mile fell run. It is a hilly multi-terrain course through some of the finest coastal scenery in the South West on Dorset's beautiful Jurassic Coast, overlooking Charmouth's famous fossil hunting beaches with views to historic Lyme Regis. It includes an ascent of Golden Cap, which is the highest point on the South Coast of England at 191 metres.
PLEASE NOTE: The use of headphones are not allowed, no dogs or wheeled vehicles. You must be 18 to enter this race.
Important Changes for 2020 - WE WILL BE A CUP-FREE/CUPLESS RACE!!
Please note that Charmouth Challenge 2020 will be a CUP-FREE / CUPLESS race. What does this mean? It means that we will NOT be providing disposable cups at the water stations. Volunteers will be happy to fill your water bladders/bottles/collapsible cups at the water stations. In our quest to make this season plastic free we ask that you run with your own re-usable cup or bottle. Collapsible cups are available to purchase on-line and on the race day at Charmouth Primary School.
