Marazion to Porthleven - 24th July 2013

10.8 miles - 4.5 hours

I had hoped to get good GPS data for this walk but unfortunately my Garmin watch gave up the ghost at Praa Sands. By that time I had done 5.96 miles in 2 hours 18 minutes, and had done 2,141 ft of elevation gain and 2,104 foot of elevation loss i.e. basically I stareted at sea level at Marazion and returned to sea level at Praa Sansa. The whole walk was around 10.8 miles and took me slightly longer than I had expected, i.e. four and a half hours.

Ready for off at Marazion
