Another new location for Puretrail running with the Event Centre at Morwellham Quay. This is our first time foraging the high trails above the River Tamar. We're kicking off with this tortuous 10km....at least there's a pub at the finish line!
A TRIO OF CREPUSCULAR WINTER TRAIL RACES
Our original Race The Light will be back in Mothecombe on the Erme Estuary for a 4th consecutive year and this time joined by two other Nightfall Races one from the banks of the River Dart at the River Dart Country Park and another high above the Tamar Valley with the event centre at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Morwellham Quay.
RACE 3. TAMAR VALLEY (Morwellham Quay PL19 8JL) Saturday 13th February 2021.
Our third race of the new Winter Nightfall Series and the most vertiginous by far.
6.5 miles in total starting riverside at Morwellham Quay the initial ascent is eye-watering. The Tamar trails are by nature steep and unforgiving. But RTL Tamar Valley is as quirky as they come.. there’s even a section of rail track to run along back to the finish. So no chance of getting lost.. even in the dark!
Race start time will be 5.15pm
Bespoke Race The Light (Tamar Valley green) medal to all finishers.
