WELCOME TO 'FORDH SEN MIGHAL' 

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, Mount's Bay and my personal favourite, 'Bowl Rock'.
There are wonderfully undulating sections such as Trencrom which stands at almost 560ft and farmland that creeps toward the 600 mark. With over 1,500ft of elevation, expect most of it in the first half alone!

St Michael's Way is the only designated European Cultural Route in the UK and provides over 11 miles of historical importance on this Cornish National Trail.

The path has been used since prehistoric times. It was used to cross the Cornish Peninsula and it 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, including right here on this route.

St Michael's Mount 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

Discover the heritage and discover Cornwall's own distinctive world in trail shoes.

Note: There are 3 major A road crossing on the route(A3074, A30 and A394).
Every measure will be taken to ensure the absolute safety of every single person from runner to crew and oncoming vehicles.
Also there is a mid marshland train crossing and a road crossing to the beach finish near the mount.

Dogs allowed but must be harnessed at all times especially near road and train crossings. Misbehaved dogs and careless owners can and will be disqualified from receiving a place and time by any single member of event crew.
