The Tywardreath Trotter has now been run for 2014 but you can register for the 2015 event by visiting the website mentioned below.

In 2015 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 25th July 2015.

This will be the 9th year for the race, which has a 1 mile fun run at 5.30pm and the main 7 mile race at 6.45pm. 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.

For more information and to download an entry form, see race photos, results, course details, etc, go to www.tywardreathtrotter.co.uk by clicking on the link below.
