    Race The Tide

    About the event
    From the organiser

    In the glorious private setting of the Flete Estate, Holbeton, Devon (PL81LW) we are hosting a Long marathon/Baby Ultra-Marathon distance race, its actually 29.5 miles. It involves 2 estuary crossings at Burgh Island and the Erme Estuary before finishing in the pretty village of Holbeton.

    Courses are now designed so you can expect a lovely mix of private footpaths, coastal path, bridle paths, country fields and Woodland. However, the marathon incorporates the South West Coast Path on both sides of the estuary including a beach section at Bigbury-on-Sea and a run across the causeway to the privately owned Burgh Island.

    On marked paths to the west of the island, we take you up to the top of the island, you descend and cross the causeway to continue the South West Coast Path further westwards climbing some awesome hills before racing the tide at Wonwell beach, across the estuary and running across Mothecombe beach. You then follow a circular route, continuing on the South West Coast Path for a few miles and on to the village to finish to pick up your well earned medal.

      When I first signed up to the race I wasn't too sure what to expect as there wasn't any reviews or much information other than the description on the website.Communication was pretty good. race day instructions were only sent out a few days prior. I guess this is probably because of the variables in weather and route changes but some extra communication a couple of weeks prior would be nice but by no means a deal breaker. Directions to the start were very clear and parking was very easy.Registration and kit check went very smoothly . I would say that a coupe of extra toilets would have gone down well. But I was there early enough not to have to queue too long. Before the start of the race was a nice and short race briefing. They had explained some locals/walkers had removed some of the way markers for some unknown reason so and they were doing their best to make sure we didnt get lost!The race itself was amazing. The route was stunning. First following the River Erme up and down before meandering through some beautiful countryside and villages before dropping into Bigbury then running along the beach out to Burgh Island. There as a little welcome part there cheering us on which was nice as I felt pretty sapped of energy by that point after running for what felt like a couple of miles on the beach.After Burgh Island the real challenge started. The South West Coast Path out to the Mothecombe estuary crossing. The scenary was amazing but the temperature was also starting to rise and it felt tough. After the crossing there was another couple of tough sections of coastal path before again heading inland over some beautiful countryside before making our way back up the River Erme to the finish line.The reception at the finish was amazing lots of cheering and clapping. Just what you want after completing 46.4km with 1300m elevation.All in all I really enjoyed my day runing Race the Tide stunning route I don't think you could tire of. I thought the aid stations were well stocked and supported although I didn't use them to there full potential other than topping up my water/nutrition bottles. There wasn't much in the way of crowds/spectators around the route but for me I wasn't that bothered it was remote so I don't blame people for not standing in the middle of nowhere to cheer us on.Overall I thought it was well organised well. Marshalled and put together I would Definately recomend it to an new or seasoned trail runnerJust one addition I think would have added to the experiance is some sort of bar/food at the finish. I could have murdered a cider and a burger at the end.

      There are 3 distances to the Race the Tide events, 10K, 16 mile Half-Marathon and 29  mile Marathon, as you can tell this is a trail event where unusual distances are commonbut Pure Trail tell you the distances beforehand so you know what you are getting.The Pure Trail team are always very friendly and well organised, this is a must do event and I will be back next year, not sure which distance I will do next year, but this year it was the 16 mile option for me, which saw us head uphill from the start and within half a mile, wading through a very wet, muddy water section, which for me is great fun, then single track through woodland, before we crossed a bridige over the estaury and up into more woods, the following downhill through the woods was fast and fun, with estuary glances through the trees, soon we were at mile 6.5 and at the Erme Estuary, the tide was out but it still meant a run through some water, others walked I ran, splashing through the water, then it was a couple of miles of hilly coast path before turning inland through fields and country lanes, before we reentered the woods and had the pleasure of wading through the muddy water again, quick stop for some photos and downhill to the finish, where we got a fab medal and a well stocked finish line of goodies. Do this event!

    Bere Pen 10k

    63 Station Rd, Bere Alston, Yelverton PL20 7EN, UKView event

    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Bere Pen 10k is a scenic 3 down, 3 up road run around the Bere Peninsular which passes along the beautiful River Tamar.

    The route starts in the village and winds its way down to Weir Quay. The first half of the run is a very fast downhill making it easy for the runners to cover the ground in good time however, once they reach the flat it is then a very hard slog up some very steep hills before re-entering the village for a fast downhill to the finish.

      I had raced this event in 2016 (2nd Female) and thought I would race again as I enjoyed it so much despite the 712ft elevation gain! The course was well marshalled and despite the lack of spectators the beautiful scenery makes up for that.Finishers medal, small bag and loads of Ambrosia for all finishers. A bbq and cake sale were also in the small race village.Disapointed that there was only prizes for 1st in Age Cat and none for 1st 3 finishers overall. How they can start an Age Cat at 1st Veteran 30 Female is beyond me? Clearly not a Vet at that age, no other races in Armada Series have such a prize and start at V35.Anyway a new course best for me, 2nd female again and a very cheap entry fee.

      Good route and good atmosphere, one gigantic killer hill then downhill for ages. The parking situation was a nightmare though, arrive early!! We nearly missed the start.
    • Did the Ivybridge 10K in 2016

      Be prepared for the big hill, it does go on a bit. Then a super down hill to regain your time. Lovely evening race, with a bar, always a bonus

    Burrator 10K

    Burrator Lodge, Yelverton PL20 6PE, UKView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    The Burrator 10K is a fast, flat route that is almost all on tarmac. UK Athletics license applied for and it will be run under UK athletics rules.

    The setting is stunning but its also perfect for a PB! It starts 0.5 miles south east of the visitor centre and does one complete loop of the reservoir and then 2/3rds of a second loop before finishing at exactly 10K about 300 metres from HQ (the visitor centre). This course, measured and certificated by England Athletics, was first used for the Burrator Noir 10K, run on a wet and windy night in December 2015. There is just 113 metres of climbing on this course. And were sure a top runner in good conditions can break 30 minutes. However its also ideal for fun runners and beginners.

    CASH BONUS! 200 FOR FIRST MAN WHO BREAKS 30 MINUTES OR FIRST WOMAN WHO BREAKS 34 MINUTES OR 100 BONUS FOR FIRST MAN WHO BREAKS 31 MINUTES OR FIRST WOMAN WHO BREAKS 35 MINUTES!

    The race is held along quiet, scenic country roads of the South Hams. The start is on Embankment Road by the side of the model railway station called 'Ria End' which reflects the fact that Kingsbridge is situated on a ria, not an estuary. The start is only 200m from the recreation ground and registration.
