Coast path runner completes 10-day trek at Land's End
A coast path runner from Praze-an-Beeble has completed his epic ten day challenge to raise money for charity.
Andy Jukes ran 309 miles, covering the entire Cornish coast path to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West.
Forty-six-year-old Andy, along with friend Jayne Angilley, started the run at Cremyll on Friday September 20 finishing ten days later at Land’s End, where they were greeted by family, friends and supporters who had been tracking their progress.
His trek around the county raised more than £8,500, with donations still coming in.

Andy said: “It was incredible. Most days of the run is a bit of a blur in my memory but the runners we had completing sections with us really helped to keep us motivated as they were so happy with their own personal achievements. We could not have done it without their support and that of our support crew in the guise of my dad Chris, my wife Polly and Jayne’s husband David. The donations made have been phenomenal and everyone has been so generous.”
Along the way the pair climbed more than 50,000ft, had five ferry crossings and burned nearly 60,000 calories.
At various points on the route they were joined by more than 50 people, including players from the Cornish Pirates, children from Crowan School and other running enthusiasts.
