10k running race organised by Tarrant Monkton and Launceston villages. It also includes a 1 mile race for little legs.
The 10k route follows the river Tarrant along the valley and up to the chalk hills, once populated with the infrastructure to support the nearby WW2 airfield of Tarrant Rushton. It makes it’s way through the ancient woodland and farming landscape of Cranborne Chase, skimming Manswood, home to one of the longest residential thatched roofs in the country. It circles Launceston Wood and passes a, locally famous, lightning struck tree before descending back into the village.
It starts and finishes at the Langton Arms in Tarrant Monkton. A walk is also available, starting from the pub. Taking place every June.
Mugs are possible to buy on site, limited stock available. Orders can be made through the website.
