MAWNAN FUN - Mawnan Fun Run has been re-branded under the name of Run Mawnan.  The event has become more and more popular with the running community, both locally and from further afield, and the committee felt that the fun run name does not convey the true nature of the event.  However, the children’s 1-mile fun run is still at the heart of the event, alongside the 5k and 10k events. Entries for this year’s Run Mawnan on 22nd September open on 1stJune www.runmawnan.org.uk/entries.  Entries received before 30 June can take advantage of the ‘Early Bird’ offer, with entry fees pegged at last year’s rates, so don’t delay – get your entries in soon!
