Opportunities to get running in Cornwall

With plenty of running clubs and groups in the county, it has never been easier to join at an entry level. Many clubs have a walk run group for those that have not run before or for a while.

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!
