The award-winning Bodmin pasty maker, Proper Cornish, is delighted to announce that it is the main sponsor for this year’s Beacon Beast Marathon in Bodmin which takes place in April.
The Beacon Beast Marathon, which takes place on Sunday 16th April and is in its second year, is a celebration of the community spirit of Bodmin, taking in the sights and scenery of the Bodmin Way.
The route takes in the delights of Lanhydrock National Trust Estate, Redmoor Nature Reserve, the Bodmin Beacon and Cardinham Woods. This will be an enjoyable event for runners, volunteers and spectators alike with a mixture of trail and road running that incorporates roads, woodlands, fields, footpaths and stiles and the challenge of around 3000ft of elevation.
There will be trophies awarded to both male and female finalists who finish in first, second and third place and all runners who finish the course will receive a bespoke medal and a t-shirt.
Entry fees apply to runners and all proceeds are shared with local charities and communities. Last year the marathon raised £2,400 which was split between 17 charities within the local area of Lanivet, Nanstallon, Cardinham, Lanhydrock, and Bodmin.
Chris Pauling, managing director at Proper Cornish, said: “As a major employer in Bodmin with a key focus on health and wellbeing, we really appreciate the benefits that can be gained by taking part in the marathon. As part of our ongoing community support, we are delighted to be the main sponsor for this year’s Beacon Beast Marathon. I am sure it will be an enjoyable day for everyone attending and it’s a fantastic way to raise money for local charities and the community. We wish all runners the very best of luck.”
