Cornish emigration had been caused by a number of factors,but due mainly to economic reasons and the lack of jobs in the 18th and 19th centuries when many great Cornish people or "Cousin Jacks" migrated to various parts of the world in search of a better life for their families.The driving force was the opportunity for skilled miners to find work abroad,later in combination with the decline of the tin and copper mines in Cornwall . It's estimated that around 250,000 Cornish men migrated between 1861 and 1901.Miners made up most of that figure.

At the bottom of every pit in the world you will find a Cornishman.

Help us celebrate St.Piran's Day by honouring and paying tribute to our brave and hardworking ancestors who prevailed in finding a better way of life by taking on the coastal mining challenge of running from St Just to The Island in St.Ives.

Along the route will be the world famous mines of Crowns and Wheal Owles (Poldark's Wheal Leisure)at Botallack,Geevor tin mine,Levant and grazing past Pendeen lighthouse and finishing upon 'The Island', the far side of Porthmeor Beach, situated near the Historic Tate Gallery.


The 18 mile stretch between St Just and St Ives is arguably the most beautiful and certainly the most remote section of the entire coast path. It is also one of the most strenuous. There are precious few opportunities for refreshment and accommodation, particularly out of season, and the many steep descents and ascents mean that it will probably take longer than you expect to cover the distance. Be prepared! This is one of Britain’s first Environmentally Sensitive Areas, where annual grant aid allows participating farmers to work the land traditionally. Ancient field systems define a small strip of land between the sea, surging restlessly beneath three hundred foot cliffs, and steep rocky tors that represent the highest points in the Penwith Peninsula. This section is characterised by countless rocky headlands and coves and an overwhelming sense of space rarely found in today's Britain.
