The Cupcake Caper is a 8 hour timed event, based in the gorgeous garden of the Double Locks Pub at the Riverside Valley Park in Exeter.

The route is a fast, flat off road route on riverside paths, each loop is 3.3 miles, run as many or as few laps as you like in 8 hours. Run solo or run in a relay team of up to 4 people. ( one one team member on the route at any one time )  2 laps 10k, 4 laps half marathon, 8 laps for marathon distance. 9 for ultra. 

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 hot and cold food and drink, a great way to refuel after your run, or for any spectators to wait for you.

Bespoke medal and scrumptious cupcake for every finisher. One lap minimum. Teams one lap for each member. 

Prizes for the man and lady who complete the furthest distance on the shortest time.

My first ultra- although I had not intended to run further than Marathon distance- the race dragged me in to running for the whole six hours. A great course- flat and was easy to navigate. Good marshals, fun feed station. Great company

2018 - took part on the first day of the inaugural Cream Tea Caper. Really enjoyed the race, I like a loop course as it is really is about challenging yourself, not focusing on racing anyone else or a defined distance, and just syncing into a rhythm and enjoying yourself. The marshals were lovely and very supportive, the medal is quirky, sparkly and fun and there was a great atmosphere. Also blessed with a beautiful sunny day - I acquired some significant tan lines!
