Great Langdale Marathon.

Great Langdale Marathon.

The Hilliest Marathon & Half in the UK??? – Langdale 2013.

Saturday 21st September saw over 400 runners descend upon the picturesque Langdale valley for the annual Marathon & Half Marathon. The route, a hilly ‘Hendon Brook’ esk course, winds through the Langdale valley taking in some of the most scenic roads in the Lake District.

Motley and Bret 1

Leading the way in the Marathon for Team Clayton was Dave Motley finishing 4th overall. Breton Holdsworth also started the marathon but after Lap 1 unfortunately had to pull out after an old hip injury flared up.

The half Marathon saw ‘Team Brewster’ flying the flag for Clayton with Roger Brewster finishing 12th and wife Andrea having a strong run in 286th.

Highly recommended race so put this in your diaries for 2014; and if the full is too much go for the half!

Thanks to Fell Captain Dave Motley for this report!
