Marathon Du Malton 2019
10k Gourmet Wineathlon - Registration is now open!
Sunday 25 Aug 2019
Inspired by the Marathon Du Medoc in France's wine region, this new food and wineathlon goes through an area of Yorkshire famous for its award-winning local produce and spectacular countryside.
Starting and finishing in Malton's pretty market place, there will be ten food and drink stops around the pretty 10k course. Runners are encouraged to take their time, pace themselves and enjoy the party atmosphere, fancy dress and gourmet food stops.
On offer will be local specialties like award-winning craft beer and wine, miniature Yorkshire puddings with roast beef, macarons from the UK pastry champion and even pan fried grouse on toast!
The race starts and finishes in the market place of Malton where a party atmosphere will be created with runners and families in fancy dress.
For family members not taking part in the 10k the Street Food Sunday event will be taking place in Malton at the same time with the start/finish line right alongside the pop-up picnic area.
The 2018 event sold out weeks ahead of the event, so please do not delay booking your tickets. Numbers are strictly limited because we need to organise catering for all the food and drink stops along the course.
The course is a mix of urban and rural landscapes, so may not be suitable for all. However one team helped one of their members with a cast on her leg complete the course in a wheelchair by lifting the chair over the kissing gates while she hobbled through the gates. Another couple completed the course with a runners buggy and several runners were accompanied by their dogs (on leads).
Much more than a race, the Marathon Du Malton is an experience.
If you are in any doubt as to the amount of fun had by all taking part then just look online #marathondumalton
