On Sunday, October 1st just over 250 competitors of all ages took part gathered at Carwinion Playing Field to take part in this year’s Run Mawnan event which also celebrated its tenth anniversary.
Rotarian Rod Allday, Chairman of the Run Mawnan committee, said: “Since we returned last year after an enforced Covid break of two years, it’s good to see the number of entrants getting back to pre-Covid levels.
"As always, we are extremely grateful to all the local businesses who have supported us by providing some great prizes, and to all the volunteers who marshal the course and help in the event field.
"This is one of Falmouth Rotary club’s main fund-raising events of the year and we always aim to distribute half of the proceeds to village organisations.”
After a Covid-enforced two-year break, Run Mawnan returned on Sunday 25th September.
The Budock Vean Hotel and Hotel Meudon have been keen supporters of this annual community event for many years and, once again both hotels offered Dinner, Bed & Breakfast for two people to the winning men and women in the 10k and 5k races. The event, organised by Falmouth Rotary Club, attracted 190 participants and raised many thousands of pounds for local charities and good causes;
