"BRITAIN'S TASTIEST 10K"

Sunday 29 August 2021

Inspired by the Marathon Du Medoc in France's wine region, the 'Marathon du Malton' is a gourmet wineathlon going through an area of Yorkshire famous for its local produce & beautiful countryside.

Starting and finishing in Malton's pretty market place, this unique 10k course has three ticket options:

​* '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!

'Elite' entry - For those serious runners who are just into getting their best time. With no food & drink included.

FANCY DRESS THEME: FOOD & DRINK

On offer will be local specialties like award-winning craft beer, mini lobster brioche buns, roast grouse, artisan gin, mini Yorkshire puddings with roast beef, wine from the Medoc and even macarons from the UK pastry champion! 

 

The event starts and finishes in the Market Place of Malton where a party atmosphere will be created with runners and families in optional fancy dress.

 

The whole concept is designed to create a fun team atmosphere - one long party. A celebration of the best Yorkshire food and drink, a bit of healthy exercise and a great way to see the countryside!
