THE ORIGINAL AND ONLY RACE ON SMW (The UK's ONLY Designated European Route of Culture)

Fordh Sen Mighal III : The Last Pilgrimage...

Saturday 8th December @ 10am


WELCOME TO FORDH SEN MIGHAL III 


Exquisite trail running with a few road crossings across the inland of the West Cornwall Peninsula taking in the breathtaking views of St Michaels Mount where the race will start near to,Trencrom,Ninnes Bridge,Knill's Monument,St Uny church and St Ives Bay,mounts bay and my personal favourite,'Bowl Rock'.
Wonderfully undulating sections such as Trencrom which stands at almost 560ft and farmland that creeps toward the 600 mark.

St Michael's Way is the only designated European Cultural Route and finishes at Camino to Santiago de Compostela, although we will be running the Cornish leg of course.

The path has been used since prehistoric times, to cross the Cornish Peninsula and 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.

St Michael's Mount (The iconic finish)has a counterpart in France at Mont Saint Michel. Both sites have much in common in their history and legends. In particular, the Archangel Gabriel was supposed to have appeared at both sites during the Fifth Century
