The great thing about living at the seaside is that during the winter months, there’s plenty of empty roads to run on.
The worst thing about living on the seaside is that there aren’t many people around to share the empty roads with.
Inspired by this, we are proud to present the ninth annual ‘Maravan’, a unique Marathon Double event run on the almost empty roads of a virtually deserted caravan park.
From small beginnings in 2014, the Maravan has grown to become a much-loved fixture in the local running calendar, with local runners, and folk from further afield, beginners and experienced ultra-athletes, all running together on this unique and quirky event, inspired by a marathon runner’s own favourite little events.
With the aim of providing a fun, sociable event which doesn’t take itself too seriously, with an interesting venue and a local flavour, all finishers will receive a custom designed medal for each day, along with a quality goody bag.
Perfectly acceptable for 100 club membership, this 7-lapper will be run under ARC regulations. Permit number TBA for both days – permit will be displayed at Race HQ.
