Popular Tavy13 race is heading for a sell-out

THE popular Tavy13 race looks like it could be heading for a sell-out.

The event takes place on Sunday and it is likely all 450 places will have gone before then.

Organisers have moved the race back to March, having held it in early April last year.

All the local clubs will be well represented on Sunday and the likes of Jim Cole, Stuart Hall, Pete Waumsley, Cleo Perry and Sarah Hirons are among the entries so far.

The race starts at 10am from Tavistock College. They is also a Primary Schools’ Challenge race on the day, which last year attracted nearly 500 youngsters.
