10th Anniversary Saxon Shore Marathon!
For 2020 we've reached the 10th Anniversary of SVN! So we're going to have something of a retro event. We're going to reprise the original medal (all be it with a new ribbon) and we're reprising the entry fee too! We're also reprising the limited field, so we're going to have a very hard cap for this event. So for 2020 it's going to be a marathon only event.
We do these things not because they are easy but because they are hard.
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.
It's going to be a very simple event, 5 times up and down the sea front for absolutely zero elevation, it's dead flat, for the 26.2 miles.
(A rather younger looking bunch of folk!)
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!.
