Welcome to the Tywardreath Trotter website!

This year’s race takes place on Saturday 28 July. The 1-mile fun run starts at 5.30pm and the 7-mile race starts at 6.45pm.

Please note that the race car park will be in a different field this year, on the other side of the road closure. The field is very close to the race HQ but if you’re driving to the race don’t head for the centre of Tywardreath, as you’ll end up on the wrong side of the road closure. Please click here for directions to the car park. Please do not park on-street as this will cause congestion.

Please click here to enter the 7-mile race or fun run.
All online entries are made through our sponsor, the Cornish Riviera Box Office.

Advance entries will close after Saturday 21 July. Entries on the day will be accepted from 4.00pm for both races.

Entries can also be made by calling the Cornish Riviera Box Office on 01726 879500 or in person by calling into the local box offices (including the Tourist Information Centres at St Ives, Heartlands, Fal River, Truro, Bodmin, Looe, Liskeard and Launceston).
