Enjoy the scenery of a marathon by walking the 26.2 miles as opposed to racing it.

Slow Marathon, co-concepted with Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede in 2012, is our annual 42km walking event. Celebrating the human pace, it is both an endurance event as well as a poetic act that brings together friendship, physical activity and an appreciation of our varied landscape.

'The Ba'Hill, the Battlehill, the Clashmach and the Bin, they all form a circle and Hunty lies within'.

The Slow Marathon 2019 will walk a route inspired by this local poem. It is a circle of beautiful and varied terrain - including woodland, farmland, hills, and the banks of the river Deveron - starting and finishing in Huntly.
