Clarendon Marathon

If you are looking for a marathon which is off road, picturesque and challenging then running the Clarendon is the ultimate. Our 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, we also have a half marathon event and this year we are also introducing a mini run of just 5 miles.  If you want to join us but are not able to run the full course, please feel welcome to get a team of 4 together and run in a relay or enter the mini and run in with us for the last 5 miles.

Our 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.
