Dearly beloved runners, So another successful Rollercoaster... the third one so far. Thank you to my running family, for indulging me and turning up to run, marshal, park cars, time keep, process results, and the rest... It’s always a big shout putting on a race, with the aim of making it meet everyone’s expectations. Our aim was, and still is, to make you smile whatever your speed, ability etc. I hope we succeeded. It’s always a bit nerve racking leading up to and on the day

Advertised as “5 hills in 5 miles” this race is set on the upper slopes of the beautiful Tamar Valley, at Tamar Trails, just west of Tavistock. Organised by Run Venture and the resident Tamar

Dearly beloved runners, We were gathered recently at the Tamar Trails, alongside the Beech Cafe and the Runventure Trail Running Hub for the inaugural Rollercoaster Trail run. Described by a few as a nice, short, flat, dry run!
I say run as although it was a race in the traditional sense, ie first past the post, prizes and all that, to many it was never a race. Just the chance to run around a waymarked, marshalled course with all the admin and organisation taken care
