This Christmas Half Marathon certainly has the ‘Jolly’ touch!
It's extra special as we’ve added the ‘Jolly’ touch to it to make it completely unique.
The Escot Christmas Half Marathon is the FIRST EVER HALF MARATHON to have a waterslide!!
The half marathon is laps of pathways, woodland trails and fields where in one of the fields nestles our 30 metre waterslide specially made for the Escot hill.
The waterslide is optional, you’ll get an opportunity to try it out on each lap,to sit down, put your feet up and fly down the hill faster. You will get a wet bum or tum but it’ll be fun.
We appreciate that not all of you will want a wet bottom on each lap, especially while running a half marathon distance so the slide is optional and completely your choice whether you do it every lap, not at all or just go down the slide on your final lap.
Once you’ve finished running and messing about on the slide you’ll be rewarded with a unique festive medal, a Christmas buff thingy and a scrumptious handmade pudding wrapped in it’s own pudding cloth made by the local award winning Georgie Porgie’s Puddings. There is a vegan option too!!
We will also give our unique awards to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd man and lady and to our “Jolly Runner”
