What you need to know

The marathon will return in 2018, still based at the home of Ciderology, the fantastic Bredy cider farm on the edge of Burton Bradstock, where you can camp the night before if you wish. (You must book through Bredy farm)

With parking close by and the start within 50 meters of the Cider bar, its something to look forward to at the end (as long as someone else is driving!). Its also a great place for your family to relax as you do all the work.

The routes are on nice quiet country roads, with aid stations on route and our as always welcoming environment, we want everyone to finish the marathon who starts and if you can manage 7 hours and under then #PUSHYOURLIMITS and enter now.
