There is a story attached to the Cousin Jack Classic II, you can read it here. As a Cornish woman (or “maid”), I like how this race is connected to local heritage and storytelling. I only found it by chance by googling “trail races in Cornwall” but given the take up this year, it’s clearly going to grow.
I was given the FlipBelt for Christmas. I must admit it was new to me, I’d never heard of them before. In case you don’t know, The FlipBelt is a piece of thick elasticated, stretchy fabric with gaps placed around it for all your worldly goods. Mine is a luminous yellow and I like it’s brightness.
