Race the Light

The original RACE THE LIGHT CLASSIC – 8.5 miles of shadowy estuarine trails, meandering through the privately owned Flete Estate.

There’s a double crossing of the River Erme estuary so it’s a race against the light.. and the tide. So wet feet from the off!

The start time for the race is 2:45pm (subject to change of 15-20 minutes depending on weather and tidal conditions on Raceday).

The race starts at the bottom of the slipway on Coastguards Beach, and finishes with a mighty uphill climb to the SchoolhouseDevon restaurant, high above the water.

Each finisher will receive a bespoke RACE THE LIGHT medal.

Where: Mothecombe Beach Car Park

When: Saturday, 7th December 2024

Time: 2.45pm
