Having sold out in 2019 we are back for a 4th 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 :-

The Race The Tide concept will be slightly different this year as we have staggered starts but everyone will be running through the water as all races start on the beach.

  • a 10k, racing the 
  • a half-marathon 
  • marathon

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

The Marathon was in the Top 7 Spring Marathons to enter for 2020.. 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. 

Start times:-
12:45am to 2:15pm. your actual start time will depend on your race and speed so we will be in touch at the end of the month to arrange this. Entrants will be emailed more information.

All courses will be fully marked, marshalled by runners but have very limited aid stations.
