THE New Year’s Day run, from outside Jamaica Inn every year. Probably the best hangover cure ever!
For those not familiar with the event, Brown Willy is noted as the highest point in Cornwall and this well signed, informal run (not a race unless you want to make it one) of about 7 miles, will take you on to mostly open moorland, which may be wet, slippery, boggy or frozen, and it’s steep in places. Even when it doesn’t feel too cold at Jamaica Inn, it may be freezing and blowing a gale on the top of Brown Willy, so runners should come appropriately dressed.
Although it’s for all standards of runner, it is for runners not walkers, but dogs are welcome if kept under control at all times: i.e. on their leads
Registration is held just inside the pub next to the car park. You’re required to register before the run by leaving your name and emergency contact number, then tick the ‘Out’ box. On your return, you need to tick the ‘Back’ box, so that we know you’re safe.
The Jamaica Inn generously open their doors to us, and the club asks everyone to be considerate, and change out of muddy footwear and clothing before coming back into the pub where the bar and restaurant are open serving coffee, snacks and great food. A warm welcome always awaits you by the crackling log fire in the front bar, where you can compare notes with friends, or tell tall stories to family and friends that were sensible and stayed in the warm! In short, it’s the perfect way to start any New Year.
