The Tarrant Valley 10 (TV10)
The TV10 is a charitable 10km run, which starts from the village of Tarrant Monkton on 19th June 2022 at 10.30am.
There is also a children’s 1 Mile run at 10.35am. It’s held from the field opposite the Langton Arms where you can get a beer and lunch etc. We are also serving refreshments, BBQ, ice-creams and there’s a local produce stall and raffle as well. The cross country run route takes you up into the Crichel Estate.
This historic first run was held in 1985, four years after the first London Marathon in 1981 and has been held annually (apart from the last 2 years) ever since. Founded by Gerard Wyllys from the village, we have invited him to present the prizes this year.
The winner’s categories are:
- 1st, 2nd and 3rd Man
- 1st, 2nd and 3rd Woman
- 3 Veteran categories for men
- 3 Veteran categories for women
- Fastest Under 20 year old
- Fastest in the Tarrant Valley
- Team Cup: 4 runners of which one must be a woman.
The chosen charities this year are: Ukraine and Blandford Youth Club. Children have had a tough time with Lockdowns and running is a sport that was allowed during this period so we felt it very appropriate for us to support our local children this year.
