This has to be the most fun you can have in three hours.

18 miles coursing through Dorset's finest trails, fields and stunning coastline.

Started in the village of Puncknowle and headed clockwise. First few miles running through the most beautiful fields and over stiles and past animals enjoying the sun.

Next up was a few miles around steep country lanes and the most amazing old cottages, vineyards and pubs.

Route heads over valleys and farm land before it joins the South Dorset Ridgeway and the coastal views. A few miles along this wonderful trail you take another awesome steep climb upto Hardy's Monument. What goes up! Fast race down the valley past more amazing villages including Abbotsbury, before the route flattens a little and you make your way all the way down to the famous Chesil Beach. Route here is fast until you reach West Bexington and another beast of a steep hill pretty much all the way back.


Wow! This is a 5 star FKT route.
