In 2013 Matt will be organising a Running Race and Fun Run on behalf of the Tywardreath fete committee to raise money for village charities. The race will take place on Saturday 27th July 2013.
This will be the 8th year for the race, which has a 1 mile fun run at 5.30pm and the main 7 mile race at 6.30pm. Both races are multi-terrain, with approx half of the main race off road, and the rest on quite country lanes.
In previous years, over 200 runners have taken part and we raised over £1,000 for village charities. (Just in case you have never been to Tywardreath, it’s 6 miles east of St Austell, on the way to Fowey.) Enter or come to watch.
