Totnes Orange Races

The 2009 edition of the Totnes Elizabethan Society sponsored orange races are in the books. This year there were eight different age categories, plus a police challenge race. The competitors start the race with an orange which they must throw, kick, or otherwise motivate ahead of them to the end of the course. A full orange is not required at the end of the course, any piece will do - in fact any piece of anyone's orange will do.
This year's races had heightened safety concerns due to newly erected bollards and chicanes designed to control traffic flow, so extra marshalls were on hand to protect the competitors.
