Trelissick Night Run
Night Run walkers, joggers, and runners of all abilities shone their head torches on the (slightly muddy) Trelissick estate on Saturday 28 January 2017.
Well done to everyone who took part. This was the first race a lot of you had ever tried, so extra kudos to you, especially for taking on a multi-terrain run, in the dark!
After a very welcome warm up with Paul of Move Physio, Truro, we had 63 people try their legs on the 3km Explorer run, and 71 on the 6.75km Adventurer run, and you all did brilliantly. You can find the results on the Race Nation website below
A very big thank you goes to everyone who volunteered to help at this event to make it happen. We had Rotarians, Police Cadets, Special Constables, members of our National Trust West Cornwall Events Team, alongside other National Trust staff, volunteers, and all their family members that were dragged along. Thank you so much for everything.
The money raised from this event will go back to fund the work the National Trust does to look after these special places, forever, for everyone. As a charity, the National Trust really does rely on the support we get from our visitors, members, donors, event participants, tenants, fundraisers, and volunteers to make all our work possible; so thank you.

Trelissick's Night Run explored a multi-terrain route along woodland tracks and garden trails, (and a few steps). Crofters Cafe was the place to get hot and cold treats and there were glow-in-the-dark bangles, neon face paints and marshmallow toasting to help get in the party spirit.
