What - The 'Penrose Loop' is a well known and loved route to run or walk, and makes for a perfect race! This is an approximately 10k race on the Trail around the Loe Pool, Cornwalls largest natural freshwater lake. Starting near the fairground car park at the boating Lake in Helston, the route goes onto the fields and woods of the East side of the pool. Following the main path around the edge of the lake you make your way to the coast, cross the beach and return via the tracks and hill side path of the Penrose Estate, to join the tarmac section of track before finishing across the grass by the rivver to end the race!

There will be a hot Soup for all runners afterwards and Freedom Racing 'buff / wrag / multi-functional headwear'
