Otter Rail and River Run

Saturday, 10 July 2021

A scenic off-road 10km starting and finishing on the village playing field in Tipton St John, following public footpaths and rights of way.

The mostly flat route heads downstream alongside the River Otter, through Harpford woods, along the old Sidmouth railway line, back towards Tipton, through fields out to Fluxton and along tracks to the village.

The run was first held in 2007 to mark the 40th anniversary of Tipton St John playing field.

This event is organised by Tipton St John Playing Field Association in conjunction with Sidmouth Running Club. It is held under ARC rules. Mementoes for all, including the Otter Brewery beer!

Camping will be permitted on the field over the weekend at a cost of £5 per pitch, plus £2.50 per extra person, per night. Prior booking essential to event organiser, email
