The Saint's Way Trek

The Saint's Way Trek

Your adventure awaits...

The adventure starts on Saturday morning at Padstow Church, where you will embark upon the first leg of your journey. As you leave Padstow you will be treated to spectacular views back across the famous harbour town, before making your way towards St. Breock and the ancient monolithic landmark.

The first day of trekking ends at the 16 mile mark, where we will set up camp at Mena Farm campsite’s idyllic wild meadows and unwind around the firepit.

img

Join us for a weekend of walking and camping in September!

Sunday morning takes you to the windswept heights of Helman Tor, where you can view the north and south coasts of our beautiful county. As you head down towards Golant, the banks of the river Fowey will lead you to the finish of the iconic Saint’s Way at Readymoney cove in Fowey, where a medal will be waiting for you!

Route

View the route on Strava here!

Itinerary

Meet us at our furniture store in St. Austell to park your car for the weekend and catch our shuttle bus to the start line. Leave your overnight bags and tents with us and they will be waiting for you at the campsite on Saturday afternoon.

Breakfast and packed lunch on Sunday will be provided. Mena Farm have a range of catering vans that come and visit them throughout the summer (did someone say cocktails?!) – not to mention having Lanivet fish & chip shop and pub as neighbours – so you have all the means to purchase your evening meal on Saturday night, you’ll have earned a treat!

Can you do it?

Of course you can! 28 miles may sound like a lot, but split over two days with a relaxing night in Mena Farm’s wild meadows in between, you’ll be enjoying an ice cream in Readymoney cove before you know it!

Fundraising

You’ll be surprised how quickly you can make up £250 with simply the generosity of friends and family on JustGiving! Bake sales, quizzes and bingo nights are also fun ways to raise money – if you need collecting tins or help advertising your event, then let us know!

We have a team of dedicated fundraisers here to help you with any ideas you may have, please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns – you’ll have smashed your target and more in no time!

What Happens Next?

We will be with you every step of the way from registration to the finish line. In just a few simple steps you will be on your way to being part of #TeamCHC

  1. Sign up today using the red ‘Sign Up Now’ button at the top of this page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I just do a section of the route?

If you or your family feel like tackling just half of this challenging route is enough for you, then get in touch with our team and we can arrange for you to join us on just one of the days (and don’t worry you’d still be invited camping!)

Do I need to raise a minimum sponsorship?

If you have chosen the fundraising option then we do ask for a minimum fundraising requirement of £250. Your ticket price only covers the cost of the event, so it is this sponsorship which helps to raise much needed funds for our hospices.

For both children’s tickets and the self-fund option for adults, there is no minimum required sponsorship, but any amount of fundraising you can do would go a long way in helping to support our Cornish charity.


Is there an age limit?

There is no age limit to take part in this challenge – if you think your children are up for it, then we would love for you to join us as a family! However, all under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Is it a competition?

This event is not a race, so no, we will not be timing you. However, everyone who completes the challenge will get a finisher’s medal!

Do I have to camp?

No, camping is optional (although it is included in the ticket price!). However, if you wish to go home and spend the night in your own bed then it will be up to you to organise pick-up and drop off to and from the site.

It is also important to note that Mena’s wild meadows are for tents only, if you wish to take a motorhome or book one of their glamping pods, then this will need to be organised with them separately.


I'd like to camp but I don't have a tent, what can I do?

If you want to camp but don’t have a tent then get in touch with us! A local Scout group has kindly offered to lend us tents for the weekend for those who don’t have one of their own.

Send an email with how many are in your party to alewis@cornwallhospice.co.uk to request a tent.


Recommended kit list

Day bag:

  • waterproofs
  • packed lunch (this will be provided for Sunday only)
  • sun cream & hat
  • warm layers
  • route instructions (provided at registration)

Overnight kit:

  • tent
  • sleeping bag & mat
  • warm layers
  • spare hiking clothes
  • comfy shoes for the campsite
  • pyjamas and toiletries


Can I set my own pace?

Yes! We don’t expect everyone to be walking in one big group, there will be water stations en route to sign in and out of, so feel free to set your own pace.

However, if you don’t trust yourself to follow route instructions and would rather walk in a supervised group, we will have an option to walk with a volunteer guide who will make sure you’re at camp in time for tea!

Martin Jennings Memorial Motorcycle Run

Martin Jennings Memorial Motorcycle Run

This event is organised by David Saunby and his team in support of Cornwall Hospice Care.

We’re delighted to have been chosen as the nominated charity to celebrate the 35th Annual Martin Jennings Memorial Motorcycle Run 2022.  David Saunby and his team invite you to join the ride leaving Tregurra Park & Ride Car Park, Truro  at 11am on Sunday 11th September 2022.

The run commemorates the life of biker Martin Jennings from Camborne, who unfortunately lost his life competing in the 1987 Isle of Man Manx Grand Prix – it gives an opportunity to remember Martin and all other bikers that have lost their lives on the roads of Cornwall and further afield.

Over 1500 bikes are expected to take part this year in Cornwall’s favourite and biggest motorcycle charity run and bikers are invited to assemble from 8.30am that day.

Please note – all riders taking part do so at their own risk. This is not a race – those wishing to ride fast and not within the spirit of the occasion are asked politely to stay away.

You can also find out more about this year’s run by joining the Martin Jennings Facebook Group – click HERE to visit and join the group.

Banger Rally 2022 - Porto or Bust!

Banger Rally 2022 - Porto or Bust!

This event is organised by The Banger Rally Challenge in support of Cornwall Hospice Care.

The Banger Rally Challenge has raised over £1,200,000 for charities over the  years. This year the rally is heading to Portugal – Porto or Bust!

This is an opportunity of a lifetime and will be a trip to remember, driving on some of Europe’s finest and most scenic roads. The only snag is your car has to cost around £500 to be entered in to the Banger Rally category.  (You may prefer to drive a more expensive vehicle, but this will not be eligible for the prize money).  Either way, you can still raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care. At the final night’s presentation a share of over £3,500 worth of cash prize’s & trophies will be awarded to the teams scoring the most points in each of the daily stages; the various different category winners, and of course the Overall Rally Winner!

Cornwall Hospice Care have a limited number of “Free” places available, in return for signing up we ask your team to fundraise a minimum of £1495.  You will still receive the same benefits as other participants – this includes welcome & finishing party, t shirts, suggested route plan, quizzes, challenges, car stickers, finishers medals, camping and your own team leader.  If you enjoy driving, having fun, meeting like minded people and want to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care then please get in touch with us.
