Extremely Jolly 2019
21 December 2019
This is Jolly Runnings Christmas Cracker!! Our long 10k promises you lots of festive fun.
2018 was our first year for this event and we kept the big surprise a secret until the day!! This year the secret's out, it was a first for a trail running event and this 7.5 mile run gives you a 30 meter waterslide in it. You'll get down the hill a lot quicker!!
Our Extremely Jolly trail event is sponsored by Red Rock Brewery and is taking place on Saturday 21st December 2019. The race starts at 11am at Escot House in Ottery St Mary.
Christmas is a time for giving and this race gives you 7.5 generous miles of festive fun set in the absolutely stunning private grounds of Escot.
This is a beautiful location and the fun route offers a variety of trails, mud, woodland tracks, mud, paths, streams, mud, quaint bridges, fields and water crossings. Did we mention there may be mud? You may even be lucky enough to see a few deer on your run.
We also give you a few surprises along the way and upon finishing you are presented with a bespoke Christmas medal and a very special bottle of Christmas spiced beer exclusively produced for our event by our race sponsors Red Rock Brewery. You will not be able to get these bottles of beer anywhere else as Red Rock Brewery have very kindly made them specially for our event. They will also be at the event with a pop up bar and selling their gift packs.
Fancy Dress is highly encouraged as it adds to the festive spirit of the event, we will be wearing it too, and there will be a gift for the one that catches our eye.
There will also be bespoke prizes specially commissioned by our friends at Teign Valley Glass for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Men and Ladies.
Teign Valley Glass are extremely talented glassmakers who make exquisite hand made works of art with glass. They are located at the House Of Marbles in Bovey Tracey, where you can watch them making the glass.
You can see some of their work on their website http://teignvalleyglass.com
After the race along with the Red Rock Brewery pop up bar to quench your thirst, there will also be hot food and drink available from various food vendors for you to purchase, so please bring your pennies.
There is an also an opportunity to buy an Extremely Jolly Red Rock Brewery quality technical t-shirt on our entry system when signing up.
This event has something for all the family with a new addition, the Extremely Jolly Little Elves run, a 1 mile fun run with the opportunity to go down the waterslide. This will be opening for entries soon.
Our race sponsor, Red Rock Brewery was founded in 2006 by the Parkes family. Since then, Lewis and sister Hollie Lang have grown it into a credible business, now producing an extensive range of award winning ales and craft beers that are sold in pubs, restaurants and retail outlets throughout the South West region. The brewery is located on a farm nestled in the hills outside Bishopsteignton and despite it's growth, Red Rock hasn't lost its homegrown roots or its artisan way of producing the beers. Using the finest natural ingredients, including their own spring water, there's something for everyone in the Red Rock range with 4 Craft Beers (including a multi award winning Pilsner), 8 traditional cask ales and 4 Slow beers as well as two seasonal Christmas Beers and a number of limited edition brews throughout the year. Red Rock also has an onsite Tap Bar, The Old Workshop, fully stocked with their own beer and other local drinks. There's a function room available for hire, plus a fantastic outside garden and terrace with panoramic views of the Teign estuary and out towards Dartmoor.
