CORNISH COASTAL PATH RACE SEPTEMBER 9th-17th 2017

THE ORIGINAL IDEA
In May 2000, I was privileged to traverse the whole Cornish Coastal Footpath, from Marsland Mouth, on the north coast, to Mount Edgcumbe, overlooking Plymouth, by foot – setting a record of 4 and a half days. It was a lovely, if hard, trip. The weather was wonderful, and it was fantastic to see how beautiful the whole coastline was. As I ran, I thought of maybe one day making this route into a stage race.This will be the second running of the race, after a very successful debut race in 2016 enjoyed by all the runners.

All the staff at BobBrownEndurance are experienced, friendly and there to ensure you have a truly wonderful experience. It will be a difficult challenge, but no doubt attainable. Are you ready to take your endurance to the next level? If you can finish this, who knows what you can achieve next? I have no doubt you will have an amazing time, and all of us here at BobBrownEndurance will endeavour to make your experience a memorable one.
