Now in its 3rd year, Race the Tide is in the glorious setting of the Flete Estate, Mothecombe, Devon we are hosting 3 races that cater for runners of all distances :-

To Race The Tide successfully you need to run at an average of 4mph.

  • a predominately Woodland Trail of 8.5 miles on the private Flete Estate, racing the tide at 8 miles, with 2 aid Stations
  • a 15.5 mile LONG half-marathon racing the tide at 8 miles, with 4 aid Stations 
  • a LONG marathon of 28.5 miles racing the tide at 19.9 miles, with 7 aid Stations 

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

The Marathon also 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.
