For those not familiar with the event, it's a well signed informal run (not a race unless you want to make it one) of about 7 miles, mostly on open moorland, which may be wet, slippery, boggy or frozen, and it's steep in places. Even when it doesn't feel too cold at Jamaica Inn, it may be freezing and blowing a gale on the top of Brown Willy. Please come appropriately dressed.
Although it's for all standards of runner, it is for runners, not walkers and we will start to dismantle the course from the top of Brown Willy at about 12.00, following the last runners back to Jamaica Inn by about 13.00. Please also note dogs are welcome if kept under control at all times i.e. on their leads.
There is no entry fee, just a request to consider a generous donation in our charity box. Half the proceeds will be going to the Cornwall Search & Rescue Team, who turn out every year to ensure our safety and the other half will be going to WIRED Cornwall, a Stroke and Brain Injury Rehabilitation centre based near Truro.
Registration is just inside the pub next to the car park. Please register before the run by filling out your name and emergency contact number, then tick the 'Out' box, and on your return, please just tick the 'Back' box, so that we know you're safe.
The Jamaica Inn generously open their doors to us, and I would ask everyone to be considerate, and change out of muddy footwear and clothing before coming back into the pub where, the bar and restaurant are open serving coffee, snacks and great food. A warm welcome will await you by the crackling log fire in the front bar, and you can compare notes with friends. In short, it's the perfect way to start the New Year.
Please use the main car park at the Jamaica Inn. The large overflow car park adjacent is available too. Whilst facilities are limited, there are toilets but NO showers or changing rooms. You'll have to be brave and use the car park, the rain will wash you off and the wind will dry you out!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year, which is bound to get off to a perfect start if you join us on the Brown Willy Run.
