Giants Head Marathon

Race Start: June 15, 2024 8:30 am
Race Distance: Marathon
Race Cut-Off: 7 hours

The marathon route is a very challenging, hilly but beautiful course running through the Sydling and Cerne valleys running around and under the famous Cerne Giant. It is certainly not for the faint hearted! It’s a tough race, with some steep climbs, sharp descents and the most amazing views to reward yourself with. If you’re not sure what to expect, here’s a race review to help you get a feel for the race.

The race starts at 8:30am.

There will be hot food and drinks pre- and post-race served by members of the village in the bar and Village Hall, a short walk from the finish on the village green.

The cut-off time for the marathon is 7 hours and our minimum age requirement for entry is 18 years old. For general race questions, see our FAQs.
