Duchy Capri Club Season Finale Car Run – Sunday 24th September 2006

Run from Truro to The Lizard

Written by: Tristan Barratt

Meeting in Truro was possibly not the brightest of ideas on Tris’s part, as the half-marathon was taking part that day, which meant the rendezvous car park was nearly full! After finally gathering in Staples car park (much to their customers’ surprise!) We chatted for a while and then departed for our ultimate destination – THE LIZARD!

Tris and Del took the lead, pulling of with bizarre wigs (which seem to have become a bit of a club fetish this year!) looking like a freakish Bo and Luke Duke.

We arrived in the village after a good run, to find that the area we expected to be roped off for us wasn’t! Still, there was plenty of space at the other side of the car park where we all re-grouped.

After a fabulous roast lunch in the Top House pub, we mingled and finally headed off again. We traversed from The Lizard to Helston, then proceeded towards Penzance, before hooking up with the main A30 travelling back up through the county.
