In the sea
As a county Cornwall is surrounded by water and revered for its award-winning blue flag beaches. The sea and beaches offer a veritable feast of activities for those hungry to work up a sweat. Try your hand at surfing and discover muscles you never knew you had, or stand-up paddle boarding is a great core workout, maybe swim in the sea or head out kayaking.
On your feet
With over 300 miles of Cornish coast path plus the many miles of heritage and wooded trails you are spoilt for choice if you want to head for a run. Throughout the year there are various races and challenges for those who want to really push themselves. You could do full and ultra-marathons around the beautiful coast path or more muddy endurance events. If running is a little too much then enjoy some walking instead, ensuring you can take in the incredible views that the coast has to offer.
Whether you are road bike fan or prefer to get a muddy on some off-road trails then Cornwall has something to offer you. Head out on the road and enjoy the beautiful views and countryside, take on a few steep ascents and relax tired legs on fast descents. There are plenty of wooded areas and trails to explore. Down the road from our home is The Track, this awesome place offers BMX and trail jumps for the advanced riders.
Head to Base Camp and spend an hour climbing our Clip’n’Climb climbing walls. It’s a great workout for the whole family and is sure to get the heart going and give you a nice boost of adrenalin. With a variety of walls to try then you’ll be challenged in different ways and can also race friends on the timed dual walls or face to face transparent wall.
