Britains most beautiful marathon!
We challenge anyone to find a more stunning location to cover the epic distance of 26.2 miles.
Start and Finish location is Leaplish Waterside Park. The route takes you off around the lakeside way, a good trail surface, hugging the shoreline while you absorb the stunning scenery and modern art around Kielder Water.
Tranquil, peaceful, picturesque, invigorating, inspiring, challenging, memorable, rewarding..but just remember...it’s no bus ride!!!
The Salomon Kielder Marathon will be the finale to a weekend of events, starting with the Kielder 10K and Kielder Run Bike Run on Saturday October 5th followed by the Kielder Junior races and the Marathon on Sunday October 6th. It all adds up to a great atmosphere and a fabulous weekend for this stunning region of the UK.
All participants will receive a tech t shirt, superb medal and goody bag.
