#CountryKids Boxing Day Run on The Helm

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

Both my children got new sports kit for Christmas and were keen to try it out today! My son got on his running hat and trousers and my daughter her new cycling kit this morning to drag the adults outside:

He and I headed up the hill to The Helm which runs behind Oxenholme. It's quite a steep ascent at first and was very muddy:

 My son was far more sure footed than me and sped up to the top:

Once we got to the top of the ridge things were easier for me and it was a nice spot for a run:

I am not sure how long he had to wait for me at the trig point:

There was time to appreciate the view:

My son was certainly flying when we went back down:

This was my run track (I suspect he was a lot faster!):

My daughter took Gramps on a pretty long bike ride too! Lets hope we all stay active in 2015..


  1. Amazing view! Love that first pic of the kids posing in their new kit! You must have got some amazing fresh air in your lungs :-) x

  2. Looks like a great way to spend Boxing Day, not that I'd want to do that myself. It's great that your two were excited to get their new sports equipment. Mine leave me behind when we do our run along the cliffs as well! Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

  3. He is fast! This made me miss running! #countrykids

  4. Amazing view and great to get out after Christmas for fresh air and exercise - we need to do the same!

  5. Made up for some of the excess ;-)

  6. He does too! Daughter cycled her new bike home today too

  7. The views look absolutely stunning. Bet it was some very fresh air up there!
