Kernow Vertical Kilometre

Date & Location

St Agnes, Cornwall

Organiser’s Description

1000m of total ascent... over approximately 15 miles of predominantly trail running! This is a Cornish twist to the Vertical Kilometre challenge that is popular in mountainous areas. Not finding any mountains big enough in Kernow for 1000m of ascent in one hit, this race is two figure of eight loops that take in some of the biggest climbs in the County. But unlike the usual VK races that are uphill only, this includes 1000m of descent as well, to really test your legs! Expect some fast single track coastal running between hills too!
