Tavistock Town Relays – Thursday 13 July 2017

A 1.1 mile relay race for teams of 4 held in The Meadows park, Tavistock as part of carnival week.  Held on the Thursday evening during Carnival Week the relays attract over 100 junior and senior teams and raise over £1000 annually for the Tavistock Lions Charities and good causes.  Teams come from athletic clubs, local businesses, local sports clubs, etc. We also stage a Fun Run over the 1.1 mile course for the younger children or those who prefer this to the main races.

For 2017 we are increasing participation by having 2 races for the seniors: a Women’s race followed by a Men’s race which will also include the Corporate and Other Sports Clubs teams.

Tavy 7 

photo 4Tavistock AC’s long standing 7 mile road race on its third course since it was started in the late 1980’s.  It is now held on Dartmoor on an undulating but fantastically scenic course in late October.  It starts at Plaster Down on the western edge of Dartmoor and goes past Pew Tor and the hamlet of Sampford Spiney on its 7 mile route.  There is also a 1.5 mile fun run and the whole event is a really nice friendly, family race morning.

Tavy 13 – Sunday 19/03/17

The Tavy Half Marathon is held during the 3rd week of March.  First run in 2010 to the north east of Tavistock, a new course was launched in 2015, running to the south west of Dartmoor and taking in some spectacular scenery.  The first half of the course is hilly but the last 5 miles are pretty flat and downhill, coming back into the town through the beautiful Meadows park and finishing on Tavistock Athletic Club running track.  There is also a fun run for juniors whilst the half marathon is taking place and the local primary schools finish their final mile in the ‘Primary Schools Challenge’.
