Run Venture Cox Tor Challenge

The aim is to run from the Run Venture Tavistock store to the top of Cox Tor and back.

It’s approximately 10 miles-ish and over 1,000 ft of ascent.

The Rules


  1. The challenge must be completed during store opening hours.

  2. The route is entirely up to you, however you must not run along the B3357. You may cross it but not run up or down it, for safety reasons.

  3. Register your entry in store prior to the attempt.

  4. Start and finish is on the bottom step of the store entrance.

  5. The trig point at the tor's summit is the top and must be touched.

  6. The route must be recorded via Strava, or similar, to ratify your attempt.
