Now in its 6th year the more windswept and, some might say, interesting younger sibling of the Jurassic Coast Challenge. The route starts near Padstow and finishes at Lands End. Complete up to 78.6 miles (3 marathons) over 3 days by walking, running or crawling, pitting your mental and physical prowess against some of the wildest coastline in Britain. Dare to complete 1, 2 or 3 days and brag about it for much, much longer.

Schedule

Day One: North of Constantine Bay (near Padstow) – Perranporth
Day Two: Perranporth – St Ives Bay Holiday park
Day Three: St Ives Bay Holiday Park – Lands End
There is a option to do just one or two days of the challenge @ £55 per day.

Terrain
Wild and rugged. Steep climbs and descents that test your concentration as well as your strength. Each day is unique with it’s own individual challenges and famous landmarks to add to the experience. The course follows the South West Coast path which is marked by the Acorn sign. Its a very obvious well worn route. You will be issued with course maps and the emphasis is on self navigation. In most cases its as easy as keeping the sea on your right and the land on your left.
