Helston Community College RNLI Challenge 2024

19th June 2024

13th and 14th July 2024

Over the weekend of 13th and 14th July, some Helston staff will be completing a 90km adventure from Godrevy to Porthleven, visiting every RNLI Coastguard hut along the way. A small team will be running the coastal path over the two days, racing against a relay team who will be walking, cycling and swimming their way around. This is a massive challenge and will take lots of organisation and training. We are doing this with the aim of raising a very ambitious target of £13,000 to pay for an in-shore rescue boat.

In addition, we are also organising a student fun run (or walk) on the Sunday afternoon (14th July).  The event will start in Helston and finish in Porthleven. The route will take students through Penrose towards Loe Bar, then along a short section of the coastal path (see below for more details).

Here is the video we have shared with students, which details the route and much more information.

Student Fun Run (or Walk)

To enable students to get involved, we will be organising a 5km sponsored fun run (or walk) on Sunday 14th July at 2.00pm. Registration will be at 1.30pm at the Fairground Car Park in Helston (half an hour before the start time) and students should finish in Porthleven at around 3.00pm. The route will take students from the Fairground Car Park, through Penrose towards Loe Bar, along a short section of the coastal path, finishing at First Downs Car Park in Porthleven. (Please note there is very limited parking at the First Downs Car Park).
