The Rotary Club of Penryn’s annual Enys 10K run is all set for April 27 thanks to the support of local businesses and of course the owners of Enys House and gardens.
Entries are already coming in from running clubs, but more local runners are being encouraged to join in the fun. Entry forms are available from several businesses in and around Penryn and also online at www.penryn.rotary1290.org.
Race director, Terry Chapman, said: “Now in its fourth year, the event is becoming a popular fixture in the local racing calendar.
We continue to be very grateful to the Enys trustees for our use of the estate and for the generous support of Heather and Lay and Andyloos.
“The run goes round the rural springtime lanes of Mylor Downs and finishes in the grand surroundings of Enys House and gardens.
By late April, both the lanes and estate should just about be at their best, and we’re hoping that runners will want to challenge the dominance that local Mile High Running Club seem to be establishing in the event.
“Bad weather restricted last year’s field, and this year we hope we’ll be able to equal previous entries of 150 runners to help towards increasing the donations for charities. Despite the weather, over £12,000 was made last year with donations going to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Little Harbour Children’s Hospice and to Rotary’s own Foundation charity.
The charities to benefit from this year’s event will be Cornwall Hospice Care, Surf Action and the Rotary’s campaign to End Polio Now.
