Cream Tea Caper
14 September 2019
Our Cream Tea Caper is an 8 hour timed event based in the stunning private grounds of Powderham Castle in Exeter
Powderham Castle is our stunning new venue and is also the home of the Earl of Devon, in 997AD the then Earl of Devon oversaw monks who fed the local people bread, clotted cream and strawberry preserve, thus the origins of the Cream Tea were born. This makes it the most perfect location for the Jolly Running Cream Tea Caper.
Run Solo or run as a Relay Team of 2 to 4 runners ( only one runner to be on the course at a time )
Each loop is 4.4 miles long, run as many or as few laps as you like in 8 hours.
Our Race HQ and start/finish line is nestled next to the picturesque lakeside at Powderham Castle, your route starts by taking you through the usually off-limits Deer Park, where you may find yourself running alongside the Deer, the route also visits the Belvedere Tower with its many miles of stunning views over the River Exe, it then passes through Woodlands and into the American Garden.
