|Distance||Half Marathon + other events: 8.5M|
|Start postcode||PL8 1LB|
The Classic has 8.5 miles of shadowy estuarine trails, meandering through the privately owned Flete Estate. There’s a double crossing of the River Erme estuary so it’s a race against the light.. and the tide. So wet feet from the off!
The Classic race starts on the estuary slipway and finishes at the SchoolhouseDevon restaurant, high above the estuary, then downhill to the river crossing before heading into the Flete Estate. The race finishes with a second crossing of the estuary before a steep uphill ascent to the finish.
The Half Marathon route will cross the Erme estuary on the outward and return, will include the Classic route with a feisty five-mile foray down onto the South West Coast Path, before veering west, back to the estuary for a final crossing (hopefully before the tide is in..). 3 hour cut-off for the second crossing!
