Marathon du Malton 2021
Inspired by the Marathon Du Medoc in France’s wine region, the Marathon Du Malton is a ‘Gourmet 10k Wineathlon’ going through an area of Yorkshire famous for its local produce & beautiful countryside. Starting and finishing in Malton’s pretty Market Place, this unique 10k course offers contestants the chance to nibble & sip their way around the treat laden course. Where else can you enjoy running through stunning scenery, nibbling Yorkshire puds & sipping wine? So get the drinking arm in training and dust off the banana suit – champions aren’t born, they’re made in Malton!
There are 3 race options:
– The ‘Élite’ entry is for those who are more interested in their time and do not want to visit the food and drink stations along the route
– The ‘Classique’ entry is for fun runners who want to participate in the fancy dress (optional) version of the race with a selection of Artisan food and drink stops along the way
– The ‘Escargot’ entry is for those who want to take a more leisurely stroll around the course and savour the Artisan food and drink stops along the way
Numbers for the ‘Classique’ and ‘Escargot’ entries are strictly limited because we need to organise catering for all the food and drink stops along the course – so do not delay, book your place today! 10% discount on group bookings of 10 or more.
The course is a mix of urban and rural landscapes, so may not be suitable for all. However, at both of the previous events a participant in a wheelchair has completed the course with the help of their friends lifting the chair over the kissing gates while they hobbled through the gates. Previously a couple completed the course with a runners buggy and several runners have been accompanied by their dogs (on leads).
