Plans are revealed for a massive Festival of Sport in Cornwall.

The long weekend at St Michael's Mount is expected to bring in millions of pounds to the Duchy's economy.

There will also be music and comedy at the site next September.

Organiser Nick Russling says events are not just for the super fit, "It's just a huge gathering of people who want to do triathlons, cycling, running, open water swimming. We've got team relays, so in the triathlon one person can swim, one person can cycle, one person can run. Long stuff, short stuff, literally all abilities, and that's what's going to make it so much fun."

"The economic benefit, it should be millions of pounds I hope, spent by people travelling to come and take part. It's just outside of school holidays, so people will be travelling down, staying two, three or four nights, so hopefully Cornwall will really benefit from that."

 

There's more information on how to get involved here.
