The Abingdon Marathon was first held in 1982 and 2018 will mark the races 37th year since its inception. This will be the 36th running of the race unfortunately, the 2007 event had to be abandoned.
The marathon entry has grown over the years but has an entry limit of 1,200 again this year. We expect this number to be reached by the beginning of April, well before the closing date, so make sure you enter early to avoid disappointment.
The 2018 Abingdon Marathon will again incorporate the following championship events: Oxfordshire County Marathon Championships and Army AA Marathon Championships. In addition, the event has also hosted the Twin Towns competition where we have always extended a big welcome to our friends from overseas, especially from Argentan, France, Abingdons twin town.
