The Clarendon Marathon

Millgate Winchester are proud to support the Clarendon Marathon

The route of this historic marathon route takes you from Salisbury to Winchester along the ancient Clarendon Way with a few extra turns here and there to make up a full 26.2 miles. More than 90% is off road, with the trail following country tracks and paths - many of which have not changed since being travelled by the ancient Kings and Queens of England.

In addition to the full marathon distance, there is also a half marathon event and this year also a mini run of just 5 miles.  If you want to join but are not able to run the full course, you can get a get a team of 4 together and run in a relay or enter the mini and run in for the last 5 miles.

The marathon event was first run in 1998. It was founded and organised by Paul Elderkin, a keen runner and member of a local Hash House Harriers Club. In 2012, Paul passed the management of the race over to the Rotary Clubs of Winchester and Salisbury.
