Tarrant Valley 10

On Sunday 15th July 2018, a very sunny and hot day, 167 runners started the Tarrant Valley 10 (TV10), a multi-terrain race of 10 km set entirely in the glorious Tarrant Valley.  

First over the line was Michael Beckett from City of Salisbury ARC in 34 mins and 28 secs, an exceptional time in the conditions, and only 18 seconds outside the course record (set 9 years ago). A special mention here should go to Iain Trickett of the Dorset Doddlers who was leading the race at half-way, on record pace, before he unfortunately took a wrong turning. The first woman was Ginny Mills from North Dorset Triathlon in a time of 43 mins and 01 sec, again very creditable in the circumstances. The TV10 Team Trophy, awarded to UKA-affiliated club team 4 best placed finishers (including at least one lady), was won by Poole Runners.

Race Director, Andy Eastaugh, would like to thank all those athletes who braved the conditions, and his army of volunteers from Tarrants Monkton and Launceston, and beyond, whose kind assistance helped make this year's TV10 a resounding success. We are pleased to announce that we raised in excess of £2500 for our good causes, to be divided equally between Bus Shelter Dorset, The Louis Ross Foundation and All Saints Church, Tarrant Monkton.

Finally, a note for your running diaries - next year's TV10 is provisionally scheduled for Sunday 21 July 2019. Watch www.tarrantvalley10.webs.com for details.
