Totnes Raft Race
Sunday 6th October 2019
The Totnes Raft Race, known as ‘The River Dart Struggle ‘ will be held on Sunday, 6th October 2019. It 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
2017 saw 51 rafts entered. This is an ideal corporate or group team building exercise,
but with a difference, each team must make their 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.
At the moment water levels in the River Dart are high so the full race - 13Km. from Buckfastleigh to Totnes will go ahead.
