RACE THE LIGHT – Sat 15th December 2018

RESULTS for Race the Light 2017

pureTrail ventures into the nocturnal. Almost.

As a continuation of our ‘Race the Tide’ concept.. we’ve decided to Race the Light.. and the Tide! There’s a chance you could be crossing the Erme estuary in the dark.. but don’t worry.. it’ll be lit up like a Christmas tree.. just in time for the pureTrail Christmas party at the Schoolhouse at Mothecombe.

The Race itself is a shadowy 8.5 mile escapade, meandering through Flete Estates’ secret tracks and trails.. You’ll be crossing the estuary on the outward and return legs, so be prepared for wet feet and legs from the outset. We’re racing the light so headtorches will be mandatory.. but if you’re quick you might make it back before dark.

The start time for the race is 3:30pm with darkness coming somewhere between 4:50-5:30pm…

Entries open in the Summer……………. 

The race starts on the sand, across the estuary and up into the woods. On your return you leave the woods to cross the estuary for the second time, up the slipway and continuing to the finish line at the Old Schoolhouse.
