On a warm, windless and very humid day, 165 runners completed the Tarrant Valley 10 (TV10) on Sunday 17th July 2016.
The event was won by Iain Trickett of the Dorset Doddlers in a time of 35 mins and 47 secs, an excellent time given the uneven terrain and oppressive weather conditions. The first woman (or should I say women?) were Beckie Lord of Stubbington Green Runners and Kalie Demerjian, from the USA, who, capturing the spirit of the TV10, crossed the finish line together in a truly impressive time of 40 mins and 40 secs.
The 1 mile children's race was won by Leo Riggs (Aged 9), bettering his 2nd place last year, and the first girl was Amelia Stewart (Aged 8), an impressive 3rd overall. Well done indeed to all those children who took part.
The TV10 is held annually, its aim being to raise money for charity; one national and one local. This year's proceeds will go to the Meningitis Research Foundation and All Saints' Church, Tarrant Monkton. The large number of runners and their supporters, and our well-attended craft and food stalls, will ensure that our good causes receive goodly sums of money this year.
Race Director, Andy Eastaugh, would like to thank all runners for participating in good, though competitive, spirit, and a veritable army of volunteers from Tarrants Monkton and Launceston, and beyond, whose kind assistance helped make this year's TV10 a resounding success.
NOTE FOR YOUR RUNNING DIARIES - next year's TV10, our 30th Anniversary event, has been provisionally scheduled for 16 July 2017.
