Intro: The iconic Duchy 20 is back in 2019, after a break for a few years! This race is a perfect test of your spring marathon training and fits well into the buildup for the London Marathon. The race will be chip timed.
Race HQ: Penventon Park Hotel (link to map below). Changing facilities and toilets are available. To help make the race a great experience, the Penventon Hotel is offering a generous 20% online room discount to runners who would like to stay and make a weekend of it. Simply enter the promo code Duchy20 when booking to receive the discounted price.
The Course: The majority of the course remains the same with some enforced changes to the finish due to ongoing building work. Starting at the Penventon Hotel in Redruth, the race has a downhill start heading out towards Illogan and from there out to the beautiful North Cliffs coast road for a long, fairly flat section towards Hell’s Mouth, then back inland through Coombe and Pool where the shorter second lap begins. The race then heads back towards Redruth before the finish in front of the Penventon Hotel.
MP3 Players: This event is run under Cornwall Road Runners rules and therefore MP3 players and the like are banned whilst running for reasons of health & safety, both yours and other competitors. When you wear such a device you are unable to hear other competitors, cars, bicycles or marshals instructions. Runners breaking this rule will be disqualified.
