    Hi everyone, while we can’t go out on the water we thought it might be a good challenge to see how active we are all keeping. We would like to add all our distance-type exercises together to see how far around the coast we get as a club before going back out on the water.

    We will start at virtually Swanage and see how long it takes to move around the Jurassic Coast – by cycling, running, walking, rowing machine – any form of metered exercise you are doing.

    Please could you post your distances on this thread and add your total to the person before yours to keep a running total. 1km is fine, as is 100km! But for ease please keep it to km rather than miles.

    It will be good to see what people are doing. If you have any stories of places we are virtually passing then please share them when we hit those markers along the way. We’ll use the coast path distances to judge our travels.

    Where will we get to?

    10k Nordic walk today. Planned a longer one but too many people out there, so went home!

    My 10k + the previous folk’s 48k
    = 58k total.

    We’re at Lyme Regis! Look for the dinosaurs…
    That’s a good distance in 6 days; running, cycling, erg, Nordic Walking. Just over half of the Jurassic Coast!
    Anyone swimming or kayaking? Long walks?

    According to the South West coast path distance calculator (which doesn’t go up the estuary, it takes the Starcross Ferry) we are half way between Dawlish and Teignmouth now! Jurassic Coast took less than 10 days.
    South West Coast path here we come!
