The Tavy 13 Half Marathon is held during the 3rd week of March.
Launched in 2010 the original Tavy 13 course took to the northeast 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 somewhat undulating but the last 5 miles are pretty flat and downhill. Coming back into the town through the beautiful Meadows Park, runners will find themselves finishing on the Tavistock Athletic Club running track.
Next Event – Details to be announced
Primary School Challange
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’.
Over the preceding 12 weeks, many of the children will have notched up their miles and then complete the task in front of proud friends, teachers and, of course, parents.
This is a spectacular event which takes place while the main race is underway. Over 500 children from local Primary Schools complete the final mile of their own half marathon.
