Piratical fancy dress is encouraged.

Charity - A substantial proportion of money raised from the race will be given as a donation to the Bude Surf Life Saving Club.

Parking - Public Parking is available in the Crooklets Beach Car Park which is adjacent to the race start on Crooklets Road and registration at the Bude Life Saving Club.  Parking charges will apply.   There is also some parking at Rosies Café, again parking charges apply.  Please don't park on the race route.

Registration - Event headquarters will be at Bude Surf Life Saving Club which is adjacent to Crooklets Car Park.  

Entry information - Entrants can adjust and swap their entry up to the closing date for entry on 3rd September 2023.  This must be done by the competitor on the SiEntries system.  After the closing date for entries no alterations are allowed and no swaps or entries on the day are permitted.  Any runners found to be running on another runner's details will be disqualified.  Sorry we do not offer refunds for race entries. 

Toilets - There are public toilets at the Crooklets Beach Car Park which should also be open.

Showers - Outdoor showers are available at the rear of the Toilet block at Crooklets Car Park.  These are open air showers operated by the Council, charges apply.

Baggage -  There will be no baggage storage facilities to minimise congestion.  Please leave any belongings in your vehicle.  The car park is between registration (Bude Surf Life Saving Club) and the race start so you can drop things off on the way to the start.

Start and Finish - The Start and Finish areas will be on the road directly outside The Crooklets Inn. The start will be at 10:30am, with the race heading away from the beach.

Route – The route is mostly off road with a couple of short sections of road.  A wonderful mixture of coast path, fields, wooded area and small sections of road.  If it has been wet, the route will be slippery and muddy. A copy of the race route can be found on the Bude Rats Website (

Water - There will be two water stations at approximately 3 and 5 miles.  Water will also be available at the finish.  If you think that you require more hydration than this, please bring your own supply with you.
