In starting the Coast & Cove Challenge, whichever option you choose, you do so entirely through your own choice and at your own risk. You will be responsible for bringing your own food and sufficient drink throughout the event. You must dress suitably with a good pair of walking boots/trainers. We recommend a cap for warm weather and a beanie type hat for cold/windy weather. Please be aware that the weather can change quickly on the Cornish Coast.

You will be expected to respect and accept the marshall’s decision. If you do not, and continue in the event, you will no longer be treated as an official entrant of the Coast & Cove Challenge.
