10K Run at Geevor Tin Mine, Pendeen, Penzance, TR19 7EW

Weave your way along the Tin Coast with a 10K multi-terrain run, starting from our race hub at Geevor Tin Mine, Pendeen, on the West Cornwall peninsula.  This event is open to over 16 year olds only, but there's still an action-packed day to be had by all the family with additional activities happening at Botallack Count House.... and of course you could always spend the day at Geevor or Levant Tin Mines. 

Here are the 2017 Tin-K Results (PDF / 0.025390625MB) download .

The funds from this event will go towards the £20,000 worth of South West Coast Path repairs the National Trust team need to do in West Cornwall over the coming year, and towards looking after Geevor Tin Mine, cared for by Pendeen Community Heritage.

The Tin Coast arguably looks at its best in May, with an expanse of bluebells to guide the way along the trails.  The run starts at Gevor Tin Mine, heads out to Levant Mine along the bridleways and then turns back along the South West Coast Path to Pendeen.  The route then turns back again, through the fields and bridleways to Botallack, before a final stretch along the coast path to Geevor.  The route is undulating, as you'd expect for the Cornish coast path! There will be grass, rocky trails, and one short section of road to cover.  View the Geevor Tin-K map here (PDF / 0.404296875MB) download

The Tin Coast landscape intrigues the imagination.  Be sure to spare a full day with us to find out more about this Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.  There's plenty to discover at Geevor, Levant, and Botallack Count House, and plenty to do at this Site of Special Scientific Interest.
