Route information
This is day one of a two day Marathon event, taking place in Nidderdale around the beautiful Scar House Reservoir. Entry on this page enters you to either the Marathon, Half Marathon, or the 10 mile race on day 1 only. Runners will enjoy stunning views of the Reservoir and the surrounding hills throughout the race.
Runners will either take on 1.5, 2, or 4 laps of the 6.55 mile route. Although each lap will start out flat, don't get too comfortable as you will have to contend with Dead Mans Hill which is one mile up and one mile back down. Taking this on multiple times will be a challenge for everyone taking part, but you will be well rewarded at the finish line with a pie, a pint to take home, cake, and of course your bespoke finisher's medal.
