A summary of the draft itinerary is provided below. Please note this is subject to change and nearer the time there will be a more detailed set of joining instructions available for download.  Final details will be confirmed on arrival.

Friday 20th April

On arrival at the Knoll House Hotel (Ferry Road, Studland Bay, Dorset, BH19 3AH Tel: 01929 450450) please check in at the hotel reception.  Your room is paid for but you will need a credit card for room extras.

Then register with the "pie" team, the Challenge organisers.  You'll be given details of timings, bike fittings and storage, etc.

Dinner on the Friday night is at your own expense and choice.  You might choose to eat at the hotel or alternatively try one of the local hostelries in Studland or Swanage.  Dinner at the hotel is served 7.00-9.00pm.

Saturday 21st April

If you arrived late on the Friday night and were unable to register, then please do so on the Saturday morning at 7.00am so that you can be fitted for your bike, etc.

Breakfast (included in your room rate) will be served from 7.00am onwards.

Transition bags should be loaded onto the truck between 7.00-8.00am, and the event and safety briefing will take place at 8.00 -8.20am.

The Challenge will start from the hotel at 8.30am

There are two legs to the Challenge ... the mountain bike or hike, and the afternoon hike.  For the bikers, we depart from the hotel grounds and en route will enjoy a rest stop half-way.  For the morning hikers, taxis will take us to the start of the hike.  Everyone will meet up for lunch at the transition point (at about 12.30pm-1pm depending on progress/weather conditions) before setting off for the afternoon hike along the Jurassic Coastline.  We finish at a pub.

At the finish, there will be medals and a beer waiting for you.  A coach will then take all participants back to the hotel for a well-earned shower, and drink or two!

The celebration dinner for Challengers and supporters will be served in the hotel restaurant at 8.15pm.  Drinks in the bar beforehand are from 7.30pm onwards. Dress code for the dinner is smart casual.

Sunday 22nd April

Breakfast (included in your room rate) will be served from 8.00-10.00am.

Checkout is at 10.30am but you are free to use the hotel's facilities afterwards during the day if you wish.
