100 miles in 24 hours
Derek Billings, a Lulworth ranger, has dared to do the unimaginable – attempt to run the entire Jurassic Coast (100 miles with all the twists and turns) in one push. Not only that, he plans to do this in 24 hours!
Derek works on England’s only natural World Heritage Site – The Jurassic Coast, specifically at Lulworth and Durdle Door, two of the busiest locations along the 95 mile stretch of incredible geology and landscapes.
During the past summer, Derek was involved in the publicity campaign to keep the area free of litter, after a surge in domestic tourism resulted in awful amounts of litter.
This year, Derek will be raising funds for Clean Jurassic Coast, to aid our ongoing commitment to keep the Jurassic Coast clean so that the vast array of wildlife get to live in their natural environment, millions of visitors may enjoy it and future generations can marvel at its history for ever more.
How will he do this? Derek will attempt to run the entire Jurassic Coast (100 miles with all the twists and turns) in one push. Not only that, he plans to do this in 24 hours!
The date of the run will be late April/early May depending on the weather. Better get training!
Update – Derek will start his run on Saturday the 15th of May
