Swaledale Marathon

The annual Swaledale Marathon passes through some of Swaledale's finest scenery. The 24 mile course is a fell run / challenge walk event - competitors must navigate themselves and complete the course within 10 hours. It has been organised by Swaledale Outdoor Club since 1979.

It was great to be back with the 41st Swaledale Marathon on Saturday 11th June 2022. 421 participants completed the route. A very challenging westerly wind made it tough going on parts of the route, but the weather was mostly fine apart from scattered showers. The prize winners were as follows.
