The tastiest marathon in Yorkshire returns this weekend – after it was postponed following the death of the Queen.
The Marathon du Malton was due to take place on Sunday 18 September, but organisers made the decision to postpone as a mark of respect.
It will now take place this weekend, on Sunday 23 October – and it’s hosted by YorkMix Radio!
The gourmet marathon is inspired by Marathon du Medoc, which takes place in September in the French wine region.
At a shorter distance of 10km, the Marathon du Malton takes participants on a winding route around the picturesque scenery surrounding Malton, and features a range of tasty food and drink stops to enjoy along the way.
Participants will be able to sample local specialities from beer and gin to roast beef and Yorkshire puddings as well as a few sweet treats – including macarons from the UK pastry champion!
Whether you’re looking to set a new personal best or simply want to take the course at your own pace while sampling the delicious checkpoints – there are options for everyone to get involved.
Tickets for the Marathon du Malton start at £30. For more information and to book your tickets, visit the Visit Malton website.
