around St. Ives by beach

This was not much of a run by distance but was certainly one of the best by scenery and beauty. The weather was bright and sunny but cold with a biting wind coming down from the Arctic. At 7 am there were few people about and it was fantastic to run across beaches that were empty apart from the odd dog-walker.

I ran across Porthminster Beach, then across the Harbour beach, climbed Smeaton’s Pier and then ran across Porthwidden Beach and came around the Island before, finally, running across Porth Meor beach.

It was fabulous to see your footprints crossing an otherwise unspoilt sandy beach.

I did the run twice.
