RACE THE TIDE is in the glorious setting of the Flete Estate, Mothecombe, South Devon. We are hosting three races that cater for runners of all abilities.

To finish the Long Marathon and Half Marathon races successfully you will need to run at an average of 4mph.

The Three Races:

  • A predominately Woodland Trail of 8.5 miles on the private Flete Estate, racing the tide at 7 miles, with 2 Aid Stations. Minimum age. Minimum age 17 years.
  • A 15.5-mile LONG Half-Marathon racing the tide at 7 miles, with 3 aid Stations. Minimum age 17 years.
  • A LONG Marathon of 28.5-miles racing the tide at 20 miles, with 4 aid Stations. Minimum age 18 years.

The courses combine to provide a mixture of private footpaths beside the quiet Erme estuary, bridle paths and coastal paths.

Race The Tide Long Marathon was in the Runner's World Top 100 worldwide events in 2022. It includes running along Bigbury beach and across the causeway to Burgh Island, made famous by Agatha Christie as she wrote two books while staying on the island.
