CREPUSCULAR WINTER TRAIL RACES
MOTHECOMBE (Erme estuary)
SATURDAY 2nd DECEMBER 2023
Our original RACE THE LIGHT will be back at Mothecombe on the Erme Estuary for a 7th time in December 2023
It’s 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 1:30pm (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.
** NEW FOR DECEMBER 2023..**
RACE THE LIGHT – ERME & HAMS HALF MARATHON – Taking in the Classic route with an extra 5 miles thrown in for good measure, including some sublime South Hams SWCP running back to the Erme estuary. But beware. You have to get to the final crossing within 3 hours – or it’s a swim across!
Half Marathon start-time is 1:00pm
