Ready to run? 

On Sunday 28 January a free 10k trail run takes place along the rugged South West Coast Path and through Coleton Fishacre garden. If you're looking for a more challenging route to work towards in the New Year, or even if running is brand new for you, why not try the monthly Trust10? You could run one 5k loop of the route if a full 10k doesn't sound like your cup of tea.
