Marazion Beach Fun Run coincides with campsite opening June 1st

As if there isn't enough to do to make ready and ensure we are open for camping from June 1st I have been organising a beach fun run as coordinator for Marazion school with Hayle Runners.
A year ago, fairly much to the day, hundreds of us watched as the olympic torch came down onto the beach at Marazion. It was a beautiful day, the backdrop was pretty much perfect and a Fun Run was arranged on the back of the olympic event. The run was open, but it was the children who stole the event, from tiny tots with their parents in-tow to some serious racing juniors, the event was a tremendous success and it was wonderful to see so many families being sporty and having fun.
Why waste that success I thought!
So, on June 1st we are hosting another Fun Run, this time aimed at the under 15 year old children, who stole the show last year and any of their accompanying adults. It will be half-term week, so I am sure the children will be bored by that last saturday and their parents will want to "exercise" them! The tide is right for a 4pm start and if the weather is kind perhaps families can stay and barbeque after on the beach following the races. The event is being sponsored by The Godolphin Arms this year and supported by Marazion Town Council. There are entry forms which can be collected from Marazion School or downloaded from 
Entry fee is £2 and all finishers will get a medal. There are also prizes for the first 3 girls and boys in each race. And a school plaque for the first Marazion schoolchild across the finish line in the long race of 1.5 miles.
Children can choose from a short race of 0.8 miles from in front of the Godolphin Arms to the Red River and back or a long race of 1.5 miles running two laps of the same course. Posters can be downloaded from

The campsite opens June 1st and the new shower and changing -room in the old water shed are almost finished. Photos and a blog about them, to follow!  Meanwhile, here's a picture of our new puppy, Rowan, lending a hand putting in a new gateway from the campsite paddock into the wooded glade
and testing out the sink and plug in the campsite paddock!
