F.A.Q.

Do I need to run on the actual railway lines

NO! Why would you even ask this question.  Please do not attempt to run on any active railway lines.

Road or trail shoes?

Think about the terrain you are running on, its a virtual event so its up to you to decide routes and then the best shoes for that terrain

Do I need to run it all in one go?

No, its a virtual event spanning 6 weeks, take you time, have some fun and find some amazing views to look at, god knows Cornwall has some spectacular scenery to look at! BUT, if you want to do it all in one push, fill your boots.
