The Roseland August Trail Series (The RAT) is a challenging coastal run, starting from St Anthony's Head and finishing in Porthpean on the SW Cornish Coast. It incorporates 4 different routes, White 11 miles, Red 22 mile, Black 32 miles, and the Plague (green) 64 miles. All routes follow the same part of the coastline, with runners joining each other at different points along the way. The routes take competitors through stunning coastal scenery, over undulating paths, through fields, towns and surrounding countryside, this is not for the faint-hearted!

The RAT – Roseland August Trail Race Series routes
expect stiles, gates, rocks, steps and hills. It is 95% multi terrain with a few short road sections where the path shares the public highway. The route is well signed, but while the coast path is defined along most of its length there are a few places where you could go adrift. This is a self-navigating and self-sufficient event, there will be marshals and check points at set locations, but you should not rely on others or the MudCrew team to be on hand to show you where to go! Unless otherwise instructed, avoid beaches and paths that look as though they lead to the beach. All Checkpoints have water and ample nutrition. Do not miss a checkpoint and be aware of the strictly enforced cut-offs. Leave no litter and take care – the route is precipitous in places.
