St Piran’s Revenge 10K Trail Race

Many of you will know of St Piran as the patron saint of tin miners, but recent archeological finds have shed light on a little known fact. St Piran is also the patron saint of Cornish Trail Runners.

We feel that the course of the Revenge would have his full approval. Last year, the inaugural St Piran’s Revenge sold out in under 24 hours. This year we are back. We have slightly tweaked the course from last year. It’s still a very challenging, multi terrain route that starts on Perranporth Beach and includes speedy coast path sections, steep dune ascents and descents and even St Piran’s beloved 6th Century Oratory along the way. But this year, there is more up (and more down) to give over 1000 feet of climbing on a course that is approximately 5.5 miles. It’s a tough one but ultimately satisfying. This is a back to basics race, organised with a fell racing ethos in mind. We are keen to ensure that the carbon footprint of the event is kept to a minimum. So what does this mean. No medals I’m afraid or goody bags / post race swag (although we may give you something recycled at the end). There are no water stations on the course.
