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.
