Sunday 16 July 2017
On Sunday 16th July 2017, a cloudy but warm and humid day, 260 runners started the Tarrant Valley 10 (TV10), a multi-terrain race of 10 kilometres set entirely within the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The race was won by Paul Hill of Littledown Harriers in a time of 37 mins and 40 secs and the first woman was Sharon Johnstone from Wilmslow Running Club whose time of 40 mins and 08 secs is a new course record.
This year's entry was a record for the TV10, matched by another record of 46 entries in the 1 mile children's race won, once again, by Leo Riggs (Aged 10) who repeated his success of last year. The first girl was Isla McPhail (Aged 9), an impressive 5th overall.
The TV10 is held annually, its aim being to raise money for good causes; one national, one from Dorset and one local to the venue in Tarrant Monkton. This year's proceeds will be divided equally between Epilepsy Action, Dorset Action on Abuse and the Tarrant Monkton and Launceston village hall.
Race Director, Andy Eastaugh, would like to thank all runners for participating in good, though competitive, spirit, and his army of volunteers from Tarrants Monkton and Launceston, and beyond, whose kind assistance helped make this year's TV10, our 30th, a resounding success.
Finally, a note for your running diaries - next year's TV10 is provisionally scheduled for Sunday 15 July 2018.
