Godolphin Trust10

Date: 25 Mar to 23 Dec / Time: 8.30am - 11.30am

Godolphin Trust10, free 5 or 10K multi-terrain run on the fourth Sunday of every month.

Trust10 is a free way-marked trail run for all abilities to enjoy the Godolphin estate. It's free, it's fun, it's informal.

Godolphin Trust10 is two laps of 5K, so 5K runners and walkers are welcome too.

Registration is at 8.30am at the Godolphin Welcome Hut and the run starts at 9am. The Piggery will be open for teas, coffees, cake and socialising after the run from 10am. The route is only way-marked on Trust10 day, but you can check out the Godolphin Trust10 map from the website and give it a try any time.

This is a multi-terrain trail run, so we definitely recommend trail shoes for clambering over the hedges and negotiating the mud.

Please bring your own timing device if timing is important to you as this is an informal event and we don't provide timing. Marshalling is also limited, and the event relies on volunteers to make the magic happen.

We recommend this event for over 14 year olds to run the 10K, and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult for the run.

For full guidance see the Trust10 FAQs, www.nationaltrust.org.uk/activecornwall

Dogs can join in on the lead, as long as you're happy that they'll be able to manage the hedges. Don't forget to bring your change for the car park (and for cake afterwards if you fancy it) or proof of National Trust membership to park for free.

We have an amazing team of Trust10 volunteers, but we're always looking for more help with marshalling, setting up the route, welcoming the runners and back marking.

If you would like to get involved please contact Email: GodolphinTrust10@nationaltrust.org.uk,
Tel: 07766 422 166

You can also become a National Trust fundraiser and raise money to look after this special place. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/activecornwall for information
