TAVISTOCK AC’s ultra specialist Adam Holland claimed victory in the inaugural Lopwell Loop race on Sunday.

The event was hosted by Storm Plymouth and saw more than 200 runners complete a tough 12km run from Tamerton Foliot up to Broadley and down to Lopwell Dam and back on the bottom road to the start. The new race included eight major hills.

Holland was the comfortable winner, clocking 45 minutes and 47 seconds.
