Virtual challenge covering the North West Coast Path - North Section
Virtual National Trails - South West Coast Path North
We're spending May, June and July covering our 4th National Trail - the stunning South West Coast path.
Three months because the entire trail is 630 miles stretching from Minehead round to South Haven Point and in real life gains around 35,000 metres of total climb.
We're working with the Trail Managers throughout these events and there will also be a special for International Trails day on the weekend of the 5th and 6th June - look out for further details!
The SWCP is very exposed to the effects of the changing climate and recently considerable stretches of cliff collapsed into the sea, so maintenance of the path is a constant battle with limited resources.
Your entry into these events directly supports the trail as we donate £1 from each to the organisation of largely volunteers that keep these fantastic resources open.
We are also offering you the chance to take part in all 3 SWCP events for a discount of £9.95 or 22% - choose the option in the entry form
For May we are covering the Minehead to Perranporth stretch and you have 4 options to choose from to complete on foot during the month.
- Minehead to Braunton (62 miles / 100km - 3km per day)
- Minehead to Clovelly (97 miles / 156km - 5km per day)
- Minehead to Port Isaac ( 152 miles / 245km - 8km per day)
- Minehead to Perranporth ( 200 miles / 320km - 10.4km per day)
Don't worry if you find you're ahead of pace (we're bringing back the pace rabbit) or indeed behind because of life circumstances.. you can switch routes right up until the 15th May. Simply edit your entry form in My Account.
