The Cream Tea Caper is a 6 hour timed event, based in the gorgeous Riverside Valley Park in Exeter.

Run Solo or run as a Relay Team

The route is a flat route on riverside paths, each loop is 3.3 miles, run as many or as few laps as you like in 6 hours.

10k? Half Marathon? Marathon? Ultra? How far will you go to claim your fantastic bespoke Cream Tea Caper Spinning Medal?

Our Race HQ is handily situated in the grounds of the Double Locks pub, each lap you can visit our “Jolly Treats” station with vegan friendly options.

You can even take a break from running at the Race HQ during the event, or even pop into the Double Locks for some extra refreshments, then start running again. But the clock is always ticking.

The Double Locks is open all day and serves great food and drink, a great way to refuel after your run, or for any spectators to wait for you.

You can choose to do one day or take on a double challenge and do both days!

There are Limited places available on each day.

Each runner who completes at least one lap is rewarded with:

A Bespoke Cream Tea Caper Spinning Medal

A Jolly Running Cotton T-shirt

Your own Cream Tea in a box (Cream Tea consists of Scone, Cream & Jam). Hot drinks, cold drinks and other food is available to purchase from the Double Locks.

Run solo both days and get an extra memento to commemorate your achievement

 Cream Tea Caper Medal, with centre spinning section, how do you eat yours?


The male runner, female runner and team each day that runs the most laps in the shortest time, will each win a Cream Tea Caper Trophy. The bespoke trophies are made by our friends at Teign Valley Glass.
