Distance running, Running, Marathon


For the more serious trail runners!

If you hunger for something a little more challenging, then how about taking on 2 trail marathons across the west pennines in 2 days!

Can your legs handle 2 different but equally challenging marathon distance routes?

Both marathons start and end in Sunnyhurst Woods, Darwen, however, each route is very different.. One heading towards Rivington and the other towards Holcombe!

We guarantee you will be tested! BUT... We have some serious bling for your efforts! Plus, there is a bar, right there at the finish line and hot food laid on, plus fully loaded check points! 

2017 Double Marathon challenge was ahuge success and we are super excited to be back again in 2018!
