More than 1,000 motorcycles will roll into Falmouth this Sunday after completing the 36th Annual Martin Jennings Memorial Motorcycle Run - weather permitting.

The motorcycles are due to arrive between 4pm and 4.30pm after passing through Helston Turnpike at 3.30pm.

The run will be starting from the Tregurra Park and Ride Car Park Truro at 11am on a countywide ride and will be coming down the A30 at approximately 2pm to 2:30pm as far as Camborne West, passing through Camborne, and then up to Beacon (Martin Jennings home village) for a brief stop in the square for a minutes silence will be held in memory of Martin Jennings who tragically died competing in the 1987 Manx GP, and also other fallen bikers who have lost their lives on the roads in Cornwall.

There will also be a special mention of fellow motorcyclist Ivor Uren of Redruth who suffered a massive stroke resulting to a bleed on the brain last September, and has been bed ridden ever since in a nursing home in Hayle, and very unlikely to ever recover, being unable to communicate.

This is the reason why The Stroke Association has been chosen for this year's charity.

Best viewing points will be the bridges, that span the A30 between Chiverton and Camborne West.


Falmouth declared one of UK's most relaxing seaside towns, but beaten by Newquay!

The organisers would like to apologise to other road users for any delays caused by the vast numbers of motorcycles involved in the run.

In the event of rain, the run will be postponed until the 24th September 24 , due to a bridge being removed on the seventeenth.

Up to date details can be found on the Martin Jennings Memorial Motorcycle Run Facebook page.

The route into Falmouth from Helston will be as follows: Rame, Longdowns, Treliever, Penryn By-pass, Ponsharden, North Parade, Greenbank, High Street, Market Street, Church Street, Arwenack Street, Bar Road, Castle Drive, Cliff Road (Seafront), Pennance Road, Western Terrace, finally finishing at the Falmouth Recreation Ground, where the rock band Loco will entertain the bikers.
