Run Falmouth Half Marathon is in its 7th year organised by Cornwall Hospice Care in conjunction with Falmouth Road Runners. The event is the 4th event in Cornwall Grand Prix Race series sponsored by Cornwall Glass.

The 13.1 mile route starts in the lee of Pendennis Castle following the coast past the beautiful beaches of Gyllyngvase and Swanpool and glimpsing Maenporth Beach as the route rises to give fabulous views over the bay towards Pendennis Castle. The route follows undulating Cornish country lanes featuring open fields and wooded scenes, passing the beautiful Falmouth Golf Course twice. The run is well supported along the whole route as locals from the picturesque villages come out to cheer the runners on.

There are all the usual features of a Grand Prix event; water stations, baggage drop, bananas, prizes, and for the first time the Run Falmouth Half Marathon is being chip timed and individual gun & actual times will be provided on the day.

The race is limited to 700 places only. Online registration will close at 23:59 on THURSDAY 7TH MARCH 2019, or when the race is at capacity. Registrations will be accepted on the day if places are available.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.

£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families  through the loss of a loved one.
