Escot Christmas Marathon
22 December 2019
The Escot Christmas Marathon is set within the grounds of Escot Estate where the beautiful landscape creates a natural winter wonderland.
This marathon is laps of 4.4 miles of pathways, woodland trails and fields. In one of the fields nestles our 30 metre waterslide specially made for the Escot hill.
The waterslide is optional, you’ll get an opportunity to try it out on each lap, that’s 6 times to sit down, put your feet up and fly down the hill faster. You will get a wet bum or tum but it’ll be fun, we'll also have a "Jolly Gin Bar" where Andy and Mike will serve you a tipple of mulled gin at the top of the slide.
Once you finished a bit of running and messing about on the slide you’ll be rewarded with a festive medal, a Christmas muff and a scrumptious handmade pudding wrapped in its own pudding cloth made by the local award winning Georgie Porgie’s Puddings.
We will also give our unique awards to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd man and lady and to our “Jolly Runner”
