Solway Coast Marathon
July 21 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm£30 – £39
The Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) was designated in December 1964 in recognition of the quality of its landscape and its significant historic and scientific interest. It stretches from Rockcliffe in the North to Maryport in the South, covering about 115 square kilometers of the Solway Plain. The primary purpose of this designation is to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area.
The route starts and finishes at The White Heather Hotel. This course is best described as one of the flattest marathon courses in the UK and is a must for anyone looking for a PB. The roads are quiet country roads and very flat. The course takes you on a 5 mile loop through Kirkbride, Newton Arlosh and back past the start where family and friends will be able to cheer you on and give the encouragement for 21 miles to come. The course then heads back out through Kirkbride and on to the Solway Coast taking in Glasson, Port Carlisle, Bowness on Solway, Cardurnock, Anthorn, Longcroft then back to Newton Arlosh and on to the finish at The White Heather Hotel.
