Every year TACH host a popular Summer Series of four races (see 2016 dates below), plus the now well-established Winter Moorland Multi-Terrain 10k race and the new Mini version for youngsters:






The Moorland Multi-Terrain 10K Community Challenge - TACH's Winter 2016 race.

Why should the adults have all the fun?

Our new companion event, the Mini-Terrain, squeezes all the very best bits from our main challenge race (forest trails, open fields, hills and of course mud!) into an action-packed mile and a tiny bit.
 
Open to all junior runners aged between 8 and 15 years, the emphasis is very much on fun and participation but there are race numbers, timings and age category prizes - plus a little something for everyone just for getting round! So come along and join the muddy fun. The Mini-Terrain will start just after the main race at 11:00am.

Kids 8 to 15 years Online Entry 3.60
