Extremely Jolly

This is Jolly Runnings Christmas Cracker!! Christmas is a time for having fun and spending it with friends and family. You can do exactly that on this event and it will really get you in the Christmas spirit.

Our Extremely Jolly trail race, sponsored by Red Rock Brewery, is taking place on Saturday 21st December 2019 at 11am at Escot House in Ottery St Mary. To enter please see the ‘Enter Now’ button below.

Last year was our first year for this event and we kept the big surprise a secret until the day!! This year the secret’s out, it was a first for a trail running event and this 7.5 mile run gives you a 30 metre waterslide in it!! Yep you heard right, see the pictures below!! Our slide will have you screaming with laughter!

As well as the Water Slide our ‘Selfie with Santa’ and  more festive touches will be back in this years event.


Christmas is a time for giving and this festive trail race gives you 7.5 generous miles set in the stunning private grounds of Escot.
This is a beautiful location and the fun route offers a variety of trails, mud, woodland tracks, paths, streams, quaint bridges, fields and water crossings. You may even be lucky enough to see a few deer on your run.

What else do we give you?  A bespoke Christmas medal, a candy cane and a very special bottle of Christmas Spiced Beer produced exclusively for our event by our race sponsors Red Rock Brewery.

You will not be able to get these bottles of beer anywhere else. Red Rock Brewery will also be at the event with their pop up bar to quench your thirst post-run where you can also buy their Christmas Gift Packs. Bring your pennies as this will be a cash only bar.

Fancy Dress is highly encouraged but optional, it adds to the festive spirit of the event, we will be donning some Christmas attire too, and there will be a gift for the one that catches our eye.

A change of clothes for afterwards is recommended as you will get wet bums, tums and feet.

There will also be hot food and drinks vendors to warm yourselves up.

Our race sponsor, Red Rock Brewery was founded in 2006 by the Parkes family. Since then, Lewis and sister Hollie Lang have grown it into a credible business, now producing an extensive range of award winning ales and craft beers that are sold in pubs, restaurants and retail outlets throughout the South West region. The brewery is located on a farm nestled in the hills outside Bishopsteignton and despite it’s growth, Red Rock hasn’t lost its homegrown roots or its artisan way of producing the beers. Using the finest natural ingredients, including their own spring water, there’s something for everyone in the Red Rock range with 4 Craft Beers (including a multi award winning Pilsner), 8 traditional cask ales and 4 Slow beers as well as two seasonal Christmas Beers and a number of limited edition brews throughout the year.Red Rock also has an onsite Tap Bar, The Old Workshop, fully stocked with their own beer and other local drinks. There’s a function room available for hire, plus a fantastic outside garden and terrace with panoramic views of the Teign estuary and out towards Dartmoor.
