Event Date:

10th October


Overview

The Totnes Raft Race, known as ‘The River Dart Struggle ‘ takes place along the river Dart starting at Dart Bridge, Buckfastleigh, and on through a mixture of white water, fast-flowing weirs and calm stretches, and makes its way down to the finish in Totnes, a distance of some 13 Kilometres. This is acknowledged as one of the great river challenges and  is an ideal corporate or group team-building exercise,

Each team must make its own raft out of a restricted list of approved materials. Crews between 2 to 10 people per raft, all-male, all-female or mixed, over the age of 18, can take part in an exciting struggle to the finish.
