Fun Run Information and Registration

The Race and Course

Fun Run
The Charmouth Challenge FUN RUN is a chip timed 2-mile run starting at Charmouth Primary School.  The run starts by road and enjoys a steep climb up Stonebarrow Hill.  It then diverts onto the coastal path towards the sea with a descent back down to the school. The run enjoys beautiful coastal views that travel across the historic Jurassic coast in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Fun Run Terms: Children aged 7 and under need to be accompanied by a paying adult ( one adult can be responsible for up to 3 children).  All children aged 8 and over may participate without being accompanied.

PLEASE NOTE: The use of headphones are not allowed, no dogs or wheeled vehicles.

Important Changes since 2022 – WE ARE A PLASTIC CUP-FREE RACE!!

What does this mean? It means that we will NOT be providing disposable plastic 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 race plastic free we ask that you run with your own re-usable cup or bottle. Collapsible cups are either available to purchase on the day or in advance on-line for collection on race day at Charmouth Primary School.
