Truro Urban event - 2nd Dec

The event HQ will be at Turners Hall, Boscawen Park, Truro TR1 1SG .  Follow signs to Malpas from Trafalgar Roundabout.  Turners Hall is the Scout Hut beyond the tennis courts.  There is a small cafe alongside the tennis courts. Should the car park be busy there is ample on-street parking alongside the park.

 

There will be two courses based around the park for runners under the age of 16.  The Junior start and finish is approx 100m from the Hall. Runners16 and over will start and finish on Worths Quay which is just opposite the Radio Cornwall studios. From Boscawen Park the walk to the [town] start is approximately 1km and should take about 15 minutes.

 

The courses in Boscawen Park are 1km [White] and 1.5km [Yellow].. There is no climb in the park.

 

There is no opportunity to design an Orange course given the contrasting needs of technicality and conflict with traffic.

Blue approx 5.5km 135m

Green approx  4.5km 80m
