The Trotter consists of a 1-mile fun run open to all ages and a 7-mile race open to competitors aged 16 or over.

Both races are approximately 50% off-road. Whatever your ability, you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome at this friendly race just a mile from Cornwall’s south coast.
Expect green lanes, picturesque bridleways, some ups and downs and a rousing reception when you arrive back in the heart of the village!

Since 2006 the race has raised almost £30,000 for local charities.

The race is usually Round 1 of the Cornwall Multi-Terrain Race Series (status of MTRS to be confirmed) and is promoted and assisted by St Austell Running Club.
