Sue's Jurassic Coast Challenge

Published on 28 March 2019 02:04 PM

Sue, our Enabling & Home Support Manager, will soon be taking part in her second Ultra Challenge. This year she is doing the Jurassic Coast Challenge and raising money for Age UK Devon.

The Jurassic Coast Challenge takes place in June and is one of the toughest events in the Ultra Challenge series, with 2600m of ascent (the equivalent of 2.5 climbs of Mount Snowdon).

Setting out from Poole Harbour, Challengers can take part in a quarter, half or full Challenge. Sue will be completing the full Challenge – walking 100 kilometres (62 miles) continuously. This means that she will be walking all through one day, all night and into the next day!  The walk ends in Bridport, having taken in Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Corfe Castle along the way.
Her previous Ultra Challenge – the South Downs Challenge – was also 100 kilometres in length and was completed in 27 hours and 58 minutes.

The above photograph of Sue above was taken during the previous challenge, as she was about to set out from a rest stop to start the night walking section. At the point the photo was taken she had already been walking for some 16 hours! 

If you would like to sponsor Sue on her epic coastal walk, please visit, or alternatively you can send a cheque or make a donation by card over the telephone.  For more information, please call us on 0333 241 2340.

All money raised will support the delivery of Age UK Devon’s services and activities across Devon.
