2017 will mark the sixth year of Run Falmouth, a half marathon that’s organised by Cornish charity Cornwall Hospice Care in conjunction with the Falmouth Road Runners. The event is part of the Cornwall Glass and Glazing Grand Prix Series and last year attracted 500 runners. Affiliated and non-affiliated runners aged 18 and over can enter by visiting the charity’s website at www.cornwallhospicecare.co.uk
