Welcome to your nightmare at The Hellstone Marathon we bring devilish hills, heroic views and epic skies of the course, but we couldn’t resist including a bit of magical woodland and a stone circle along the way.
We wanted to send you out into the countryside on an adventure but bring you back safely.
We wanted to make sure that even if its blowing a hooligan in top of those hills and raining, its also not minus 5 degrees, hence its in May.
These races will appeal to those who like to race a tough off-road challenge, but also with the generous cut-off times, be accessible to those runners who like to enjoy the scenery on the way round. (minimum age limits : 18 to enter the marathon, 17 to enter the half marathon, 16 to enter the 10k)
You can also run with your dog, but please see our canicross specific rules before entry.
How Long? – Cut offs are 8 hours for the marathon and 4.5 hours for the half (no cut-off for 10k)
What’s included? – Unique medals for all finishers, fully signed and supported route, route maps, Event Medics, sweeper runners, bespoke Trophies for first 3 males and first 3 females in each race, car parking, post race refreshment, male and female changing areas, option to purchase event t-shirts. (Please note – Canicross runners will not be eligable for any of the main 1st, 2nd, 3rd Ladies and Men’s prizes, there will be separate prizes for dog-assisted runners).
