Run Falmouth 2020

Run Falmouth 2020

Run Falmouth Half Marathon is the 4th event in Cornwall Grand Prix Race series sponsored by Cornwall Glass. The race is arranged and managed by ourselves and in association with the Falmouth Road Runners.

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 once again the Run Falmouth Half Marathon is being chip timed.

The race is limited to 800 places only. Online registration will close at midday on FRIDAY 6TH MARCH 2020, or when the race is at capacity. Registrations will be accepted on the day if places are still available. The 2019 event sold out, so we are encouraging people to register in advance to avoid disappointment.

New for 2020 – Run for Free! If you raise a minimum of £200 in sponsorship you will be eligible to register for the event for free!

Can you do it? Yes you can!

A good level of fitness and training is required to complete Run Falmouth Half Marathon but whatever your ability you can achieve your goal and complete the half marathon!

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5.35 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 19% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for just 11 weeks of care each year. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 31 shops.

£60 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.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every £20 you raise will fund one hour of nursing care in our hospices. In 2019 your efforts helped us open an extra bed in St Julia’s and Mount Edgcumbe Hospices. You can make the difference in 2020 and help open more beds. Our goal is to be able to open more beds  and offer more people our specialist care for those precious last hours.  Your registration fee will cover the costs of this event, but by raising sponsorship you will enable us to care for more terminally ill people in Cornwall.

The Alps Trek

The Alps Trek

This breathtaking trek covers 46 km through the Mont Blanc region of the Alps. Join our partners, Global Adventure Challenges, and be part of this amazing European challenge and witness just how beautiful the Alps can be!

Just a hop away from the UK lies the beauty of the Alps mountain range. Only five days in total, this charity challenge is ideal for those with less time to take away from home. One magnificent highlight of this challenge is that you will visit three countries in just three days – France, Italy and Switzerland!

This trek will certainly challenge you with lots of ups and downs, but the rewards are the pleasure of seeing the most spectacular views this part of Europe has to offer – from stunning cliffs, to gorgeous waterfalls running from glaciers!

Can you do it? Yes you can!

This challenge has been graded as Tough (2) on Discover Adventure’s challenge grading scheme, meaning the trek has been designed to be challenging but achievable as long as you train beforehand. You will be trekking for 3 consecutive days, so the fitter you are the more you will enjoy the challenge!

Training tips can be found on the GlobalAdventure Challenges website to point you in the right direction and can even join one of their training weekends – a great opportunity for you to meet their team and some fellow participants!

What Happens Next?

We’ll be with you every step of the way in your preparation for your Alps Trek. In just a few simple steps you can be on your way to trekking one of the natural wonders of the world.

1. Sign up today, with our trusted partners Global Adventure Challenges who work with us  to organise and run The Alps Trek. You will need to choose payment option A or B*.

5. Any fundraising support you need, we will be on hand to help.

6. Enjoy the trek!

*please note when choosing payment option B there is no requirement for you to raise any sponsorship, however we would be delighted if you did – just £20 will fund an hour of nursing care, how many hours can you fund?
