Unfortunately we had to disqualify 4 runners for wearing headphones. In very simplistic terms runners may not be insured if they run in a UKA race wearing headphones. Our race licence (and therefore the event) depends upon us adhering to this rule. We make every effort to ensure that runners are fully informed of this prior to the event (posted on website, race day instructions and numerous announcements prior to the start). Sorry, we are going to enforce the ruling, we cannot afford not to! Martin Exley-Deane, Race Director Tavy13 


After a fabulous collaberation at last year's Tavy 13 and the Tavy 7 in October we are delighted to have Mansbridge & Balment and Ocean BMW back alongside us once more.


Rock-bottom prices once again.

Only 9 if you are a UK:A affiliated runner.

This is a spectacular event which takes place  while the main race is underway. Last year we had around 500 children from local Primary Schools completing the final mile of their own half marathon. Over the preceding 12 weeks they had notched up their miles and then completed the task in front of hundreds of proud friends, teachers and, of course, parents.

We will be working directly with the schools on this but we will provide some of the details here as and when that is ready,
