Running Truro City Centre to Malpas and back

I'm currently training to take part in my first ever half marathon in October at the Cardiff Half and I'm starting to increase my training. 

I have regular running routes that I complete straight after work in Redruth Cornwall and regularly attend Park Run's at Lanhydrock Bodmin but every now and again it's nice to mix things up and try a completely new route and run somewhere new.

Last week I did exactly that and decided to run a route starting in the city of Truro out to the beautiful village of Malpas out along the river and back. It's a really nice run with such beautiful scenery, you hardly even notice your running. With gorgeous river views, sections off of the main road and lots of other runners out it is certainly a popular route for running. 

It's great to think that one minute you are in the city centre and then you can be alongside the creeks and open countryside along side the gorgeous river. Even if I did have to pay for city centre parking this route is definetely worth it for the scenery alone.

A perfect 5 mile run in Cornwall that's lovely and quiet, a flat route and one of the most stunning runs that I have been on.
