Good vibes, post race puddings, mince pies and mulled wine create one of the most challenging multi-terrain runs in the South West! Our locally renowned caper was previously voted Devon Race of the Year.

Each year, TAAC donates race proceeds to local charities, usually presented at our Round The Tree event the following Spring. 2022's event saw us present cheques to:
Great Torrington Army Cadets
Pebbled Heaths Conservation Trust
The Caper is made possible by the generous support of Clinton Devon Estates, Robert Squire and Glen Bealey who kindly allow access to their land. Please run respectfully.

'It is a great run, so much fun (mostly!) and a fantastic atmosphere. Everyone is friendly despite their pain! And the marshals are all amazing, friendly and encouraging'
"Great event, thanks for putting it on, much better than going to the pantomime"
