In the lead up to Run Jurassic, we are featuring a series of interviews from some of our amazing Jurassic Coast Trust fundraisers.  These people are running the various Run Jurassic races in order to help the Jurassic Coast Trust in our mission to protect and promote our incredible World Heritage Site.

We hope you will feel inspired by our runners’ stories – either to donate to their JustGiving page, or to take part yourself in a race to remember.

Visit our online shop to book your place as a Jurassic Coast Trust fundraiser.

Family man and half marathon runner Brian Lydon is taking it all in his stride.
