Running is a great way to get out and experience the countryside Cornwall has to offer. It doesn't matter how old you are or your fitness levels, being out in the open helps us be more active and stay healthy, and can also be a great way to unwind and enjoy ourselves.
But, just what is it that makes running such an excellent way to get and stay active and why should you take those first steps?!

There are also opportunites to take part at events like parkrun at Lanhydrock, Tamar Lakes or Penrose (from feb 2015).
If you really just want to go out by yourself, there are also a number of 3-2-1 routes around the county for you to have a go at when you feel like it!
