Holbefest Fun Run and Trail Race

As part of Holbefest on Saturday 22nd June, the Holbeton Harriers put on a Trail Race and a 1 mile fun run. This year's trail race will be 5-6 miles taking in even more of the Flete Estate and the Erme Estuary. The race starts in the heart of Holbefest, a community festival with live music, great food and lots of fun and games held at Flete Park. Race entry of £16 will include free entry into Holbefest. More info on holbefest can be found at http://holbefest.uk/

A provisional route is shown below taking in the forest trails around Flete Park, the bridle path climb up through the tunnel which featured in last year's 5k, then along the Drives of the Flete Estate alongside the Erme Estuary before climbing through Yarninknowle Woods to Ford and the final climb back to the festival in Flete Park.
