THE "TIM COAST" ADVENTURE RUN
*VIRTUAL 10K SERIES #1*
THANK YOU 2019 TIMMY ADVENTURERS!
Run, walk or shuffle a minimum of 10K between June 1st 2019 and September 1st 2019 and post your data and a photo (Both a must) via email or social media to us at Bys Vyken Events and you'll receive a bespoke 'Timmy The Toothy Trail T-Rex' medal, designed just for this adventure!
You can choose your own path and your own journey but if you share data and a selfie on the Tin Coast itself just like the great Timmy loves to do with every run, then we'll send you an autographed photo hand signed by the little man himself! How cool is that!
All participants will receive a bespoke 'e-bib' for their own personal challenge via email (the email address you used to enter). This e-bib must be worn during the challenge and you must have a photo with it.
All fees will go to The National Trust to keep within The Tin Coast area in order to help keep heritage alive on the West Penwith Peninsula.
The "Tim Coast" Adventure Run is a virtual challenge which was launched on #WorldHeritageDay 2019, and is a fun adventure set up to raise funds for the conservation of The Tin Coast on the north Cornish coastline.
The Tin Coast is maintained by The National Trust and spans a section of coast line between Cape Cornwall and Pendeen Watch in Cornwall, UK, taking in the highlights of Kenidjack Valley, Botallack Head and The Crowns, Wheal Owles (Poldark's Wheal Leisure), Levant Mine and its historical beam engine (created at Harvey's Foundry in the World Mining Heritage District of Hayle), Geevor, Wheal Mexico, Boscaswell Cliff and Trewellard Zawn, culminating in the mighty Pendeen Watch of which the light can be seen from Trevose on a good night more than fifty coastal miles away!
This cultural landscape of world heritage not only spans those four miles of South West Coast Path but also the beautiful circular walks between the age old and picturesque industrial ruins which are so quintessentially Cornish. This area is the lifeblood of the great county of Cornwall and with our help we can help toward preserving it for generations to come for leisure and educational purposes.
THIS IS WHERE YOUR MONEY HAS GONE
THANK YOU ALL
The countryside team have recently installed some granite steps at Kenidjack meaning that access and drainage have been improved at this site. We thought this was quite fitting as this improved access will mean more runners/walkers will be able to enjoy the Tin Coast
