Marathon Du Malton 2021
Britain's Tastiest 10K
Sunday 19th September 2021
Inspired by the Marathon Du Medoc in France's wine region, this gourmet 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.
* 'Elite' entry - For those serious runners who are just into getting their best time. With no food & drink included.
* 'Classique' entry - This is the main event and exactly the same as last year. Entrants are encouraged to pace themselves, take their time and enjoy the gourmet food & drink stops plus the party atmosphere!
* 'Escargot' entry - For those who prefer just to walk and enjoy the food and drink at a more leisurely pace. Perfect for a relaxed family group of all ages!
On offer will be local specialties like beer, lobster, grouse, gin, roast beef, Yorkshire Puds, Medoc wine & even macarons from the UK pastry champion!
The event starts & finishes in Malton Market Place where a party atmosphere is created with runners & families in optional fancy dress.
The event is designed to create a fun team atmosphere - one long party with music and family entertainment also provided for spectators.
Tickets are on sale now!
In previous years, tickets have sold very quickly so don't delay in booking your place. 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).
If you are in any doubt as to the amount of fun had by all taking part then just look online #marathondumalton
