The final round in the 2017 Cornish Grand Prix Series, the Cornish Marathon is reputedly one of the hardest road marathons in the country and it certainly is a toughie. With 535m (1755 ft) of cumulative ascent over the 26.2 miles, the race is indeed a real test of phys...

The 14th and penultimate round in the Cornish Grand Prix Series, the "undulating" Truro Half Marathon took place in glorious autumnal conditions on Sunday 17th September. As Falmouth Road Runners gathered on Lemon Quay in blazing sunshine for the inaugural pre-race pho...
