Based at RAF St Mawgan, both runs will take you on a journey through time as you pass vintage aircraft hangars, watch towers and historic bomb stores on the 75-year-old runway.
During the evening 5km you will have the opportunity to walk, jog or run the route. The ground is level and mostly concrete making the route suitable for everyone.
Once the sun has set and darkness falls the 10km run will begin. Ideal for runners of all abilities, head torches will be required for the dark runway route.
Please note that the night-time run won’t be suitable for ages 16 years and under, or dogs.

Can you do it?
Yes you can!
The 5km is suitable for everyone who wants to take part, you can choose to walk, jog or run the route and even bring the dog if you wish!
At 10km’s long, the night run is still suitable for anyone who wants to join. The level, concrete track is excellent for beginners. Whatever your current ability with some training you can achieve your goal and complete the run motivated by the knowledge that you are helping to save lives in Cornwall.
We’ll be there every step of the way from advice on the run itself to fundraising tips and packs to get you going. You can download the fundraising pack using the link below. For sponsor forms and any questions, you can get in touch with a member of our team using the form above.
