Trust10 at Godolphin

Trail running in the sunshine

Trail runs, in nature, for nature. Join the free monthly 10k trail run at Godolphin, a great way to blow away the cobwebs, get some exercise and take in spectacular scenery.

Trust10 is a free way-marked trail run for all abilities to enjoy the Godolphin estate. It's free, it's fun, it's informal. Come along and try something new, train for a race, do it for fun or with family and friends. Trust10 happens on the fourth Sunday of every month and is two laps of 5K at Godolphin, so 5K runners are welcome too.

Route

A multi-terrain route; uneven ground, stiles and mud in sections (very muddy after heavy rain!). The route is two loops of 5k, so there is an option to do only one loop. A varied route running along a farm track, through fields and to the top of Godolphin hill. The route is marked with pink flags and signs with arrows. There will also be marshals and a back runner.

There are livestock on the route. The tenant farmer has Devon Red cattle grazing on Godolphin Hill, helping us improve the habitat of the hill for nature. There may also be livestock (cattle or sheep) in some of the fields. Please take care around livestock, slowing down and if necessary, stopping or detouring around livestock. Do not pass between cattle and their young. In the unlikely case of an incident with livestock, the run will be ended and you may be asked to turn around and return to the start. 

What to wear/bring

This is a multi-terrain trail run, so we definitely recommend trail shoes for clambering over the hedges and negotiating the mud.  Please bring your own timing device if timing is important to you as this is an informal event and we don't provide timing. Water or other liquids to rehydrate.

Who is the run suitable for

We welcome all to give the Trust10 at Godolphin a go, but please be aware that it is not a flat parkrun style and does include going to the top of Godolphin hill.

Unfortunately, the route is not suitable for buggies as the run goes over a number of stiles and Cornish hedges.

Recommended age of runner is 14 and over. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept under control and on a fixed lead (not an extendable one) at all times. This is due to livestock being present on the route. If cattle approach then you should let your dog go.

COVID-19

If you or a member of your household is unwell and showing symptoms of covid-19 we ask you to please not attend the Trust10. This running event is all outdoors with plenty of open space and social distancing. We may ask you to position yourselves on the start line with the faster paced runners at the start to ensure an even distancing between runners from the start. Hand sanitiser will be available and full hand washing facilities at Godolphin. There will be no sign in and out sheet, we will be using a counter to monitor numbers of runners.
