Fordh Sen Mighal 

(St Michael's Way)

Dynamite Quay, 

Wharf Road, 

Lelant,

Cornwall,

TR26 3DU

ENTER HERE

.A trail running experience along the coast and the inland of the West Cornwall Peninsula, taking in the breathtaking views of St Michaels Mount where the race will finish opposite to, Trencrom, Ninnes Bridge, Knill's Monument, St Uny church and St Ives Bay, Mount's Bay and my personal favourites, 'The Pointless Hill' & a near mile of shingle beach to finish on!

There are wonderfully undulating sections such as Trencrom which stands at almost 560ft, uphill farmland, pointless hills and an historic steeple. With over 1,800ft of elevation, expect most of it in the first half alone! 2022 will once again include the mighty shitey hill in Ludgvan to run down and then back up again (known as "The Pointless Hill".

Note: There are 3 major A road crossing on the route(A3074, A30 and A394).

Every measure will be taken to ensure the absolute safety of every single person from runner to crew and oncoming vehicles.

Also there is a mid-marshland train crossing and a road crossing to the beach finish near the mount.

Every measure will be taken to ensure the absolute safety of every single person from runner to crew and oncoming vehicles.

Also there is a mid-marshland train crossing and a road crossing to the beach finish near the mount.The path has been used since prehistoric times. It was used to cross the Cornish Peninsula and it provided safe passage for missionaries who brought Christianity to Cornwall. 

These missionaries, who followed the Saint Michael's Way, and similar paths, are commemorated as saints in place names throughout the County, including right here on this route. St Michael's Way is the only designated European Cultural Route in the UK and provides over eleven miles of historical value on this Cornish National Trail.
