Tin Coast SWCP Half Term Challenge

Botallack Tin Coast Cornwall Buildings

First held on Friday 28 October 2016, this 2 mile fun run and activity day is part of the South West Coast Path Challenge. Details for 2017 coming soon...

Details from the 2016 event...

Starting from Botallack Count House at any time between 11am and 3pm on Friday 28 October, challengers will follow the marked route amongst the eerie mining landscape of the Tin Coast, before returning along the south west coast path itself.  Hallowe’en or coastal wildlife themed fancy dress is welcomed – just don’t forget to be prepared for the weather extremes October on the coast can bring.  Why not bring a team of friends and family and make a race of it?  Timing will be in place for anyone who wants their time recording and adding to the website here...

Sign up for the event online as part of the South West Coast Path Challenge.  You’ll then receive a fundraising pack and your own challenge t-shirt!  The 630 miles of the south west coast path costs around £1000 per mile to care for each year.  It is enjoyed by millions of people each year, and is a fantastic place to get close to nature and spot the wildlife that lives in this diverse landscape.  The South West Coast Path Challenge aims to raise vital funds to care for these special places.

Whilst you’re there… Refreshments are available from Botallack’s Count House Workshop along with a wealth of information about the history of this Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.   On Friday 28 October, visitors to Botallack can also have a go at ‘Arrows’ archery, specially designed so all the family can have a go, and provided to the National Trust by Archery GB.  Donations towards the South West Coast Path Challenge fund are very welcome.

Please note there are a couple of short but steep inclines, some steps and two stone stiles, so the route is not suitable for push chairs.  Children must be accompanied by an adult (so get your adult training now so they can keep up!)
