The 36th Gatliff Marathon Course

The Gatliff has different routes each year through rural countryside using footpaths and tracks. There will be 50km and 25km options (31 miles and 15.5 miles) and a route description will be given to each entrant. The objective is to complete the distance within 10 hours.

Setting Out

The clock starts when you collect your checkpoint card from the registration desk.

Following the Route

A detailed written route description will be provided at the start. These provide "turn by turn" instructions and include key grid references and magnetic bearings.


There will be five checkpoints on the 50km and two on the 25km. You will need to get your checkpoint card punched at each of the checkpoints on your route. Food and drink will be provided and there are toilet facilities at some (marked on the instruction sheet).

The Finish

This will also be at Edenbridge Rugby Club Pavilion. Hot food, tea/coffee and showering facilities will be available, free of charge, to all entrants. Food at the finish will be served from 1:30pm until 7:00pm.  The Pavilion closes at 8:00pm.

Certificates will be awarded to those who have completed their full distance on foot and have had their checkpoint card signed or punched at all the checkpoints on their route. A special certificate will be awarded to those who have successfully completed ten 50km Gatliff Marathons.

Results will be posted on the providers website. They can also be ordered at the finish for delivery by mail.
