Further information

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.rnrnThe 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.
