It’s time to run the North Cornwall Coast, isn’t it?

IMG_6670The National Trust Coastal Challenge series is back for 2016! Five guided trail runs on (hopefully!) sunny evenings between May and September, lead by experienced leaders finishing with a BBQ on the beach or a pint in a beer garden.

We think we’ve got some of the best views and the best trails around. Craggy headlands, deep valleys, long sandy beaches. And even better, anyone with a small amount of running in their legs can join in. We’ve got a 5k and a 10k option and the groups will cater to all abilities.

The challenge, if you choose to accept it is twofold. Firstly, to come along to all of them and take on the trails overlooking the Celtic Sea. We’ll lay down the gauntlet that you’ll struggle to find a better set of running routes in North Cornwall, if not the World!

Secondly, we love this section of coastline, but as with a lot of the coast path it takes a lot of time and money to keep it looking as good as it does. As a charity it costs the National Trust an average of £3000 per mile of coast path to maintain it in good condition each year.

Last year, from the five evenings of running, we raised £492. It would be amazing to top this and raise some much needed funds to help us look after this landscape that we’re all privileged to be able to be a part of. Spread the word about the events, bring your friends!
