Marathon Challenge

A challenging, long distance walk from Harmans Cross around the spectacular ruins of Corfe Castle to the Victorian Port of Swanage and back to Harmans Cross via the spectacular Purbeck coastline.

Once at Chapman’s Pool, walkers will then head inland at Houns Tout and walk back to Harmans Cross.

This advanced walk is approximately 26 miles and is not suitable for children under 15. This walk should take about 10 hours to complete depending upon age and ability.
