Colworth Marathon Challenge


The Marathon Challenge is a suite of three races which take place over three consecutive days. The races consist of a 5 mile run, an 8.1 mile trail race, and a half marathon; all of which adds up to a full marathon distance. Races may be entered in any combination, i.e. you may enter one, two or all three. Details of each race are below.

The dates for the 2014 races have now been confirmed as 20-22 June.

Entries to the 2014 races are now being taken.

Entries can be submitted by either post using an ENTRY FORM or on line via the Runners World web site (for which they add a charge to the entry fee).

Race numbers are usually sent out by post during May/June. Entries received less than a week before a race will be retained for collection from the Entries Desk.
