Join us this October, for a stunning coastal trail run from Lizard Point, Great Britain's most southerly point. This one day ticket allows you to take part in our Cornish Coastal Adventure weekend with a guided run from Lizard's Point to Porthleven. It's a stunning route along the coastal path. Along the way you will find out about the local area and also learn trail techniques from our qualified guides. There will also be a refreshment stop around halfway featuring local produce as well as a mini cream tea!
All abilities are catered for but you need to be able to run around half marathon distance, so whether you are a new to trail running, just looking to get some miles in an inspiring location, or smash out trails like a pro, you're in good hands. As with all Run the Wild events, it's a team event so you will be grouped with similar ability runners and led by one of our experienced Run Leaders who will route find and set the pace for you. We walk anything too steep and it's a good opportunity to get some trail running tips from our leaders along the way. At the end of the run there will be transport available back to Lizard's Point.
Trail running is one of the best ways of exploring wild places. It provides amazing freedom and also is a great way to exercise. There are many health benefits considered to be contributable to trail running vs road running but there are also more hazards and variables to be considered.

Lead Runners in the Alps are International Mountain Leaders and in the UK are qualified England Athletic Coaches or Fitness Leaders. They are familiar with the route and the terrain. They are there primarily to route find for you and will do all they can to make the trip as safe and enjoyable as possible. They will make decisions that help minimise the risks to the team. Please listen to their instructions. Whilst we will give you every opportunity to complete the planned itinerary, weather, natural risks and other unforeseen circumstances may mean the route or itinerary has to be changed. Lead Runners will also be in regular communication with the adventure coordinator and logistic teams who will make joint decisions over emergency situations and changes to the route. Whilst every support will be provided by your leader and the support crew, you are responsible for your own safety and ensuring you get to each days accommodation on time. You will be part of the team and expected to remain part of that team, contributing and ensuring the success of the team in achieving its goal.
