Virtual National Trails - SWCP West
Organised by UltraBritain Virtual

Virtual challenge covering the South West Coast Path - West Section
Virtual National Trails - South West Coast Path WEST
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.
This is the second leg - the Western 208-mile section of the trail from Perranporth round anticlockwise to Plymouth.
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.
You have 4 options to choose from to complete on foot during the month.
- Perranporth to Lamorna (65 miles / 105km - 3.5km per day)
- Perranporth to The Lizard (98 miles / 158km - 5.25km per day)
- Perranporth to Portloe (146 miles / 235km - 7.8km per day)
- Perranporth to Plymouth (208 miles / 335km - 11.2km 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 June. Simply edit your entry form in My Account.
AwardsWe'll send you a custom medal on completion of your Challenge, as well as a postcard from the trail featuring your personal stats plus a downloadable certificate.
