Don’t walk, run…

Tarrant Monkton 10km

• On Sunday 19 June, the peaceful village of Tarrant Monkton in north Dorset will put on its running shoes once more after a break of two years and play host to the annual TV10, the Tarrant Valley 10: a 10km race on roads, bridleways and farm tracks set in the beautiful Cranborne Chase. The TV10 and a separate 1 mile children’s fun run will start at 10.30am and 10.35am respectively, directly in front of The Langton Arms pub in the heart of the village.
The event is open to runners of all standards. If you are not a runner, the village would love you to offer your support. All proceeds are shared between The Blandford Youth Club and The Ukraine Appeal.
This popular event is held under UK Athletics rules (Licence 2022-43129). For full details visit

• Support Dan Baker, a local musician from Blandford, making the walk from Blandford to Hyde Park Corner, London, to raise money for the Stars Appeal Live Charity, which provides live arts, from music to visual art, to patients while they are in hospital. Dan will be leaving Blandford at first light on 9 May in his trainers, getting to Hyde Park Corner sometime in the afternoon/evening of Friday 13 May. He’s been very lucky to have accommodation offered at the end of each day!
