Doynton Hard Half Marathon
A tough cross-country half marathon (ish) on public footpaths, bridle paths, and country lanes thick with mud, through rivers swollen with Winter rain and over hills with hellish climbs and wicked descents, across fields, through forests, along farm tracks and forgotten footpaths. Add in old bridges, a quarry, a churchyard, a secret glade (well it used to be!) topped off with some magnificent views, and you’ll understand why we’re excited by our race.
The Doynton Hard Half Marathon takes runners on a challenging tour of the countryside over three separate and distinctly different sections, each returning to Doynton village. It's pretty tough but it's fun! It's hilariously hilly and marvellously muddy, it will probably be quite cold (it's in January), the scenery is terrific and the terrain varies wildly. We just love it!
