Dartmouth Mayflower 400

Opening Times

Open (16 May 2020)
Saturday09:00 - 16:00

‘Dart the Dart’ is a half-marathon with a difference! A physical but fun-filled foodie event that will see up to 400 runners eat their way along the River Dart, from Totnes to Dartmouth.

The multi-terrain culinary adventure will take place on Saturday 16th May and will feature 13 stops where runners will be able to sample tasters of the best local food and drink  available whilst taking in spectacular scenery.

The event will raise vital funds for the Dartmouth Food Festival 2020, a not-for-profit organisation, described as “One of the Top Ten food festivals in the UK” and a landmark event on the culinary calendar. This year Dart the Dart is being held in partnership with Dartmouth Mayflower 400.

Runners, who are also invited to wear fancy dress with a ‘foodie theme’, will begin at the Riverside Cafe in Totnes and visit locations that include the Waterside Bistro, Sharpham Vineyard, the Durant Arms, The Red Lion, Ferry Boat Inn, Kingswear Coffee, and - as a special coup for the event, the parade ground of Britannia Royal Naval College, before arriving in Dartmouth itself where the The Dartmouth Music Festival will also be taking place.

From the nutritional to the nautical but nice, runners will indulge in mouth-watering tasters along the way such as locally brewed beers, paella on the beach, Salcombe Gin, Hunt Cider, Squealer Pie from Chunk of Devon, and a selection of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options too.

The closing date for entry is 6th April and all participants must be 18 or over due to the alcoholic samples on offer along the way!

All finishers will receive a goody bag.
