The objectives of the event are:

  • To raise money for Cornwall Air Ambulance.
  • To challenge yourself to achieve a distance that you are proud of.
  • To enjoy yourself in the company of your team members and other entrants.

For the Coast and Cove Event 2018 we have arranged a challenge for every ability. No matter what your walking experience we have a challenge specifically aimed at you.

The idea of every distance is to challenge yourself, have fun and raise money for the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
