Perranporth to Porthtowan (birthday special run)

Much of the credit for this one must go to my good friend Sam... who, having spotted that my running plans were being curtailed in the weekend after my birthday, encouraged me to push the boat out, and treat myself to a truly special run.

The result was, for me, one my all-time favourite runs - 8 glorious miles of coastal and clifftop trail from Perranporth to Porthtowan, so hot and hilly it took me over two hours to complete.

Of course, some of that slowness might also have been down to getting my new camera out every couple of hundred yards, to shoot the latest stunning view!

This run was so amazing I ended up with masses of footage - enough for TWO videos. The first one goes as far as Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes:

...While the second video picks up where that leaves off, following the run from St Agnes to the finish in Porthtowan.

If you'd like to try this one yourself, this stretch of coast path is fairly well marked - but the cliffs aren't the most stable, so be careful. If it helps, my GPS readout from the run is here:
