National Trust Lanhydrock Park Fence Fun Run

Just for fun and fundraising...

A 3 mile(ish) fun run following Lanhydrock's park fence - just so you can see how much it needs repairing and replacing.

Sunday 10 January 2016, 11am, so everyone can kick start their new year and get those New Year's Resolutions underway. The run is open to anyone 13 years and over and running with a dog is welcome. Prizes very kindly donated by Simply Cornish and Cornish Orchards. £6 on the day entry. Money raised from the event goes towards the Lanhydrock park fence fund, so we can repair and replace the many broken sections. The old park fence is made from treated softwood, but we are replacing with untreated sweet chestnut and oak - much of it from trees from the estate and then cut at the local saw mill bordering the estate. The hardwood fence soon becomes a habitat of it's own, developing a coating of beautiful lichens.

Tickets for the National Trust Christmas Raffle will also be available to buy, with a top prize of £10,000! Tickets cost £1 each and the money raised from tickets sold at Lanhydrock goes toward the park fence fund. Hope you can make it!
