Day 2, Sat 18 Jun 2022

Porthleven to Penzance (Approx 16km and 450m of ascent)

Today's trek starts in Porthleven and takes us in a north-west direction towards Penzance. The first part of the route will take us through the abundance of historic mining sites that dot this area of Cornwall. Some of the mining works offer an impressive insight into the recent past of this part of the country, and the precariously positioned equipment is a reminder of the hazardous nature of this work. Praa Sands is an impressive beach that is popular with surfers and hopefully the weather will offer us the chance to enjoy this popular beauty spot. The rest of the route is full of spectacular coves, such as Piskies Cove with its beautiful clear water. Our day ends just after passing St Michael's Mount, the spectacular castle perched on the island and reached only by a causeway at low tide.

Please Note: Visiting St Michael's Mount is not part of the itinerary. On the day it may be possible to visit, but this will depend on timings and availability of tickets. If you would like to visit St Michael's Mount then we would suggest you plan to do so before or after the challenge.

Accommodation: Camping

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3, Sun 19 Jun 2022

Mousehole to Land's End (Approx 19km and 780m of ascent)

Today's trek will see us reaching the most westerly point in the UK, Land's End. Today is also one of the toughest days of the trek so we will need all our energy to make it to the finish point.

We will leave the village of Mousehole behind and follow rugged and remote cliff tops. The route will negotiate the craggy rocks around Lamorna and the pebbled beach of St Loy's Cove before continuing on along more spectacular cliffs and hidden coves before we reach the village of Porthcurno, home to the famous open-air Minack Theatre carved into the rock.  The rugged and rocky terrain continues all the way to our finish point at Land's End.

We then return to our campsite where we will be glad of the chance to recharge our batteries before the final day of walking tomorrow.

Accommodation: Camping

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4, Mon 20 Jun 2022

Portreath to Godrevy Point (Approx 11km and 600m of ascent)

This is no easy final day as we head east from St Ives and begin trekking westwards. We begin at the village of Portreath and start a section of steep ascents and descents with stunning views of the old smugglers coves down below. Soon the route flattens out as we head along the cliff tops towards the stunning finishing point of Godrevy Point. You’ll have time to celebrate your achievement at this beautiful finishing point before being transferred back to the campsite where you will be free to depart.

Accommodation: Not included

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
