The Tywardreath Trotter & Fun Run take place in late July each year (always on a Saturday between 24th and 30th July inclusive) and raise money for local village charities. The inaugural races were held in 2006. Since then the races have been held annually and have raised over £26,000 for local charities!
The Race HQ is at The New Inn (PL24 2QP), in the centre of the Tywardreath, close to the south coast in mid-Cornwall. The pub provides the drinks and there’s a great barbecue in the pub garden to provide a constant supply of food!
The races consist of a 1-mile fun run (which all ages and abilities can enter) and a 7-mile “Trotter” (which is open to runners aged 16 and above). Everyone who completes the fun run receives a medal. Runners in the main race receive a goodie bag stashed with all sorts of stuff, including a race T-shirt. Race results for the main race are provided on the day. Results for both races are posted on this website by the morning of the Monday after the race.
Since the first event in 2006 the race has attracted more and more runners every year and is now a firm fixture in Cornwall’s running calendar. The warm welcome, friendly marshals, fantastic scenery and great atmosphere make this a popular run for local runners and competitors from all corners of the globe.
Here is the course map (click on the map to view in more detail – please note that the map doesn’t include the first half-mile loop round the Trenant estate, so the mile markers are also half a mile out):
Here is the list of prizes for both races. The prize ceremonies will be held as soon as possible after each race. This should be at about 5.30pm for the fun run and 8.00pm for the 7-mile race.
