What  -   A very long 10k Trail Running Race leaving Porthtowan on the coastpath, climbing from the back of the beach at Chapel Porth to the top of St Agnes Beacon at 193m above sea level.  From here the route descends off the Beacon to follow  the track to St Agnes head and re-join the coastpath to follow it back to Porthtowan.  The route  follows the  coast path, other  public rights of way and has minimal road sections.  Race Route Map Here!
