Please don't be put off by the 8 hour element... This is a very friendly and relaxed event where you don't have to run for the full 8 hours. The beauty of it is you only have to do one 3.3 mile lap to claim your Cream Tea and medal.
The route is a flat off road route on canal paths and riverside pathways, each loop is 3.3 miles, you can run as many laps as you like in 8 hours. The route is along the beautiful pathways around the Exeter canal.
You can take as many breaks between laps as you need but the clock is still running. Relaxing in the Double Locks garden really is lovely. There is a play park there for your children.
You can Run Solo as an individual or you can run as part of a Relay Team of up to 4 runners ( teams - only one team runner on the course at a time ).
How far do I have to run? And do I have to run for the full 8 hours? How far you run is completely up to you, you definitely don't have to run for the full 8 hours and you only have to complete one full lap to receive your individual cream tea in a box and your medal. You can set your goal at any distance. 1 lap? 2 laps? Half Marathon? Marathon? Ultra? Or don't set a distance and see how you feel at the end of each lap as to whether you decide to do another. There have been lots of 'accidental marathons' and ultras at the Caper's.
The Cream Tea Caper Race HQ is handily situated in the beautiful grounds of the Double Locks pub which is situated on the canal banks, each lap you can visit our 'Jollification station' where you can refuel on water, squash, sweets, cakes and savoury snacks. We also provide vegan options. The aid station is Covid safe.
There are 250 places available.
Each finisher is rewarded with:
A Bespoke Cream Tea Caper Medal
An individual Cream Tea in a box, consisting of a scone, mini jar of strawberry jam and mini pot of clotted cream, napkin & wooden knife. (all compostable and recyclable)
