Brand new from Rat Race, Man Vs Coast pits you against 20+ miles of the most famous coastline in the British Isles. Expect high cliffs, brooding moorland, picture-perfect beaches, crashing waves, big swell, rough-hewn rocks, awesome coasteering, water jumps, short swims, a few obstacles from the Rat Race inventory….get the picture?

This is one for the adventurer who wants to make a weekend of it. Bring your family, bring your mates. Stay with us at our dedicated basecamp and enjoy Cornwall in the height of summer. From our base near Penzance and with a stunning Start-line at St Michael’s Mount, the route will weave its way coast to coast from one side of the Cornish peninsula to the other, taking in a course that is exciting beyond belief.

Rat Race – Man Vs Coast route

It is at least 20 miles. But it might feel like 50. The exact distance will be announced as we reveal more of the route, but you should be prepared for no less than 22 miles with significant ascent and descent, some very steep terrain, possibly strong winds and some very salty sea air. This is a full day’s outing on rugged ground with the sea never far away and in multiple occasions, you will be in it too. Expect hand on rock scrambling, jumps, short swims and a solid outing in the legs on the run. A standard road-run this ain’t.

    Loved it, best sporting event I've done! Really great vibe, stunning scenery and great people. Lots of immersion - don't worry about your socks and shoes getting wet, just get stuck in! Would recommend taking a spare clean pair of socks though :)
