About Torrington Christmas Caper Race

The Christmas Caper is a very challenging off-road event over difficult terrain. Depending on the weather, the course may include wading through deep water, avoiding branches and tiptoeing through deep mud. It’s great fun, but please ensure you have the required level of fitness to complete the course. Some walking is expected but please remember this is a run not a walk and we reserve the right to withdraw runners from the race who have not made sufficient progress through checkpoints. Trail shoes are recommended.

Fancy dress optional but encouraged!
