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:

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
