Race the Tide

Trail Running (UK) - - Your Next Race -

Where Hol­be­ton, Devon When May 19, 2019 This is a trail race with a bit of a twist. As if run­ning marathon dis­tance isn’t al­ready tough enough (and this is ac­tu­ally more like 29.5 miles), the race takes you across an es­tu­ary to Burgh Is­land. The is­land is ac­ces­si­ble via dry land when the tide is out, but you’ll need to run at at least 4mph to beat the tide when it starts com­ing in. The course, which com­prises part of the South West Coast Path, is a com­bi­na­tion of pri­vate foot­paths, coastal trails, bri­dle paths, coun­try fields and wood­land and has a to­tal as­cent of 1212m. There are seven aid sta­tions along the way serv­ing up ev­ery­thing from peanuts and bis­cuits to jel­lied sweets, fruit, wa­ter and Coca-Cola. So all you need to fo­cus on is run­ning and soak­ing in the stun­ning scenery.
