Combine a parkrun with a half, full or even an ultra!
We do these things not because they are easy but because they are hard. We're repeating a very unique marathon and challenge event with the Walmer and Deal Seafront parkrun! So that you're able to complete a Half Marathon, Full Marathon or even an Ultra Marathon and a parkrun at the same time! The mileage that you complete within the parkrun counts towards your mileage for the marathon / challenge event!
Check out the Course page for the logistics of including the parkrun if you wish to do so (it's optional!)
The Saxon Shore Marathon will be running for the 9th consecutive year along the sea front. The course is very flat, with a few tiny undulations, the surface is very good indeed, all hard surfaces and will be mud free and even the most navigationally challenged amongst us will be able to get around the course without getting lost. Promise! We have castles (three of them), a pier and a sea front which hasn't changed much for centuries.
For 2019 we're going to have two variations. (Including the parkrun in either is totally optional but if you do don't forget your barcode!)
The main event will be the Saxon Shore Marathon, but for those who wish to run one, two, three or four laps (or six+!) then we'll have a Viking Challenge option for them to get an official finish, Viking Challenge Medal and goody bag!
We put on marathons and challenges run exactly the way we wish they were all run. Low key, friendly and with most of the entry fee being spent on the runners. We know you like a bit of bling and a decent goodie bag. Well stocked aid station? More? Then please explore the races and consider joining us!.
