Rafts will take one to two hours to complete the course.
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, passing through some great viewing sites at Staverton Bridge (free parking) along 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 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.
Come along and experience this fantastic and spectacular event.
