Penzance's Race for Wildlife set to be the 'biggest yet'
The third year of a popular race, which sees runners raise money to protect wildlife in the county, is set to be the biggest yet.
Race for Wildlife, organised by Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Mount’s Bay Harriers, is a seven-mile course which takes in the countryside of north Penzance on October 13.
An alternative one-mile fun run will also take place around Treneere Manor, where youngsters are encouraged to dress up as their favourite animal.
Last year the event raised £5,000 and this year the race is on to raise a target of £7,500 to help the trust continue protecting Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places.

Yvonne Turner, events organiser for Mount's Bay Harriers, said: “We are delighted to once again be helping Cornwall Wildlife Trust organise their Race for Wildlife. The route is challenging but the views are spectacular and whether chasing a personal best or walking the fun run dressed as an animal this is a fun and rewarding day out.”
The trust is also encouraging teams of four people to enter, with prizes for the quickest male and female groups.
Prizes will also be on offer for the best outfits.
The race starts at 10am, with registration opening at 8.30am. The fun run starts at 9.15am and registration opens at 8.15am. Pre entry for both is advised although it will be possible to enter on the day.
