Run the Wild Cornish Coastal Adventure
New for 2019, this multi-day trail running adventure will explore the beautiful coastal trails of the South West Coast Path of Cornwall and nearby footpaths. There will be breath-taking views of the sea, guided runs, hashing trails, entertainment, storytelling, local Cornish pub food, cosy accommodation and of course, lots of fun! All you have to do is turn up and run!
Your running adventure (2 or 3 day options) will begin on Friday evening, with a 10k night run around Loe Pool. Saturday morning you’ll head off along the coast path for about 20k, to The Lizard, England’s most Southerly point. On Sunday, the 3-day adventurers will join the local Hash House Harriers and head out onto the trails around the Porthleven.
