This is Jolly Runnings Christmas Cracker!! Christmas is a time for having fun and spending it with friends and family. Our long 10k promises you lots of festive fun to get you in the Christmas spirit.  We also have the Little Elves Fun Run. A 1 mile fun run for all your little elves aged 8 and over to experience the slide too.

About the Races

This event is a totally unique trail race… A first for a trail running event. 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!

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. 

With this event we donate a percentage to a chosen charity each year, the Extremely Jolly has the highest capacity of runners of all of our events and we donate £1 for every Extremely Jolly participant to the charity. This years chosen charity will be announced shortly. 

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 you get?

* A Unique medal
* Plus a very special bottle of Extremely Jolly Christmas Spiced Beer produced exclusively for our event by our race sponsors Red Rock Brewery.


Fancy Dress is optional but highly encouraged as it adds to the festive spirit of the event.

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 Extremely Jolly Little Elves run is the Fun Run to our Extremely Jolly Event so that everyone can experience our waterslide!!

Organised specifically to include your children in the festivities as we know they’ll be pretty excited for Christmas!!

This is perfect for them burning off some of that pre-Christmas excitement. They can experience a little taste of what the adults encounter on the Extremely Jolly.

 The route is on some of the paths, trails and fields around Escot. The waterslide is purely for fun, it’s not compulsory that you experience it. You will get wet bums and tums so a change of clothes is strongly recommended for afterwards.

Our Little Elves run is taking place before the adults Extremely Jolly main race on Saturday 11th December 2021.

Adults can enter with their children or solo as a pre-Extremely Jolly warm up.

All participants need an entry.

Fancy Dress is highly encouraged as it adds to the festive spirit of the event.

As this is a fun run there will be no place prizes, timings or published results.

There will be a bespoke medal and a buff thingy for every finisher.

Due to the waterslide element the minimum age requirement for the Little Elves run is 8+ years. Sorry this is purely due to the risk assessment as we need to keep you safe. 

Our Sponsor

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. Visit to find out more.
