6th Nov - 18th Dec 2020

Your task during Cornwall’s 2nd stint in lockdown is simple:

Run the combined length of all of Cornwall’s active railway lines and the 

‘Trevithick Trail’ in Merthyr Tydfil, which is combined total of 148 miles.

Break these down into sections or run one single long outing!

You’ll have 6 weeks to complete the event, which will begin on Friday 6th November and finish on Friday 18th December 2020, giving you 2 extra weeks on top of the original planned length of the imposed lockdown.
