Marathon Du Malton 10K - "Le Classique"

17 Sep 2023

Malton, North Yorkshire
Starts: 12:30
Distance: 10 Kilometres
Entry Fee: £25.00 - £35.00

Britain's Tastiest 10k!

Taking inspiration from the Marathon Du Medoc in France, the Marathon Du Malton 10K is a fun and tasty task rather than a literal 26 miles. Malton is renowned as Yorkshire's Food Capital, so naturally on our 10k run you get to stop along the way to sample some of the finest food and drink on offer. The 10k course starts and finishes in Malton Market Place and along the route you take in stunning Yorkshire countryside including a section of the Howardian Hills ('Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty') and you even get to run along Richard Fahey's famous gallops where plenty of winning racehorses have been trained. 'Le Classique' category is the original Marathon Du Malton fun run - we encourage participants to come in food themed fancy dress and have a laugh whilst sampling the great views and fantastic food/drink stops. The minimum age for this category is 15 but you must be at least 18 to take samples from the alcohol producers.

The route takes in roads, footpaths, fields and forest paths. There are kissing gates, steps and slopes along the course, which means the course may not be accessible to all. We have have had participants in wheelchairs but they have been able to hobble through the gates with friends lifting the chair over the top. Those under 18 will not be permitted to take the alcoholic samples offered by the producers on the course. The Marathon Du Malton event includes three seperate categories (a standard 10k, a 10k fun run with food/drink stops and a walking 10k with food/drink stops). There is live music and entertainment laid on in the town centre along with a producers market and a street food court from 10.30am to 5pm
