Beltane on the Beach

The Annual Torch Race

The annual Torch Race has become a much beloved and looked-forward-to event at Beltane on the Beach. It is just as it sounds, a foot race across the sands of Popham Beach, to be the first to pick up a flaming torch. The winner of the Torch Race is dubbed "Fleet of Foot, and Beloved of Pan" for the coming year. Anyone can enter. There are no age or gender restrictions. Come one come all!
