    Please note that the routes can be subject to change following health and safety inspections. Any key changes will be communicated on the day.

  • What time does it start and finish?

    Hikers will set off in waves 20 minutes apart, from 6.30am for the full marathon and 8am for the half marathon. 

    We advise hikers with a slow pace to book the earliest start wave available to give plenty of time to complete the route.

    For the full marathon, we estimate that the fastest walkers will finish in around 7.5 hours while the slowest walkers could take around 12.5 hours.

    For the half marathon, we estimate that the fastest walkers will finish in around 4 hours while the slowest walkers could take around 6 hours.

    You will book your start wave when you register. These are given on a first-come, first-served basis. 

    If your plans change, don’t worry, you can amend your start wave using our Manage My Booking page.

  • How do I get there?

    Parking for the full marathon is available at the finish line at Holkham Estate, NR23 1RR. Free shuttle buses will run from the car park to the start line at Runton Road Car Park in the morning.

    Parking for the half marathon is available at the start line at Runton Road Car Park, NR27 9AU. Free shuttle buses will run from the finish line at Blakeney Playing Fields back to the car park in the afternoon.

    You can book parking when you register.

    If your plans change, don’t worry, you can amend your start wave using our Manage My Booking page

  • When does registration close?

    Registration for the full and half marathon closes at midnight on the Friday 3 May, one week before the hike, or earlier if it sells out.
