Route information
Distances Marathon / Half Marathon Terrain Trail
Experience the historic Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire in this autumnal trail running event. The marathon and half marathon routes take runners among the ancient barrows, which date back to 3500 BC, and include incredible views of the Wiltshire Downs.
Beginning and finishing in Tilshead, the courses follow byways and footpaths through the beautiful chalk downs around the village. Routes will be fully signed, and trail shoes are recommended due to the nature of the terrain.
