The Picnic Marathon

Date & Location

Dorking, Surrey

Organiser’s Description

A course of ferocious toughness, run entirely on rough tracks. A very hilly out-and-back route with a height gain/loss of more than 6000 feet. A run for really very exceptionally hearty man fellows and lady fellows, with superb views over the North Downs, the Mole Gap, Denbies Vineyard, and Dorking, when you can wipe the stinging sweat from your eyes. ‘Easily the hardest marathon in Britain'.
