To our very special running community and customers,


Due to these extraordinary times, our shop is closed until further notice. 

But just because the shop is closed, it doesn't mean we are closed for business! We can still post out or deliver items that you need and take payment online or over the phone. 


So if you need running shoes, socks, clothing, or anything else that will help you keep physically and mentally fit, please contact us on 01822 612548  or runventure@hotmail.com.

Stay well and stay safe.

Mind how you run,



Run Venture is the South West’s first and only running hub. We offer a range of running groups, personal training and navigation workshops, as well as organising our own races. Our running shop in Tavistock is stocked full of great gear for road and trail runners alike, and we also serve tea, coffee and cake on site.

This is a waymarked five mile trail race which has five main rollercoaster hills, all off-road in the beautiful Tamar Trails.

The date for the next Rollercoaster is 24 November 2019.

The challenge is to complete all five of the Dartmoor peaks over 600m starting from the Dartmoor Inn, Lydford, Devon as quickly as possible!

As a walk, it is a nice little test, but as a run, it is a challenge. Short enough to be attacked but long enough to feel the burn! It’s only 1.1 miles there and 1.1 miles back.
