Send in your story

We love hearing your stories about completing the South West Coast Path, and to recognise the achievement of our members we publish short stories in our member magazine Trailblazing.

To have your story featured, fill in the form below. Let us know what motivated you to start walking the Path, what you learnt on your journey and any other highlights or lowlights you think other walkers would like to hear. Tips, advice, and recommendations of where eat, drink, stay, do or visit are also very welcome.

If you are not a member, you can still submit your story as we love to hear from everyone about their experience on the Trail. We may even select your story to feature on the South West Coast Path blog. To find out more about membership, click here

For those wanting to submit a longer story for consideration of publication in the press, please scroll to the bottom of the page and contact our Communications Officer.
