Annual unique cross country race.

The yearly Beat The Bus Race is here again and event organiser Bill Valentine, of Sidmouth Running Club, wants to make it bigger and better than ever! The race is roughly 9 kilometres over multi-terrain including the uphill slog to the top of Peak Hill where the runners turn and return back to Otterton. Hopefully quick enough to beat the 157 bus on it's round trip.

Bill is looking to raise more awareness for the race in the hope of attracting more numbers and keeping up with previous races in the past few years.

The event will take place on Wednesday the 25th June 2014 at 6.37pm.
