Escot House In Ottery St Mary

This Christmas Half Marathon certainly has the ‘Jolly’ touch! It’s the FIRST EVER half marathon to have a waterslide in it!

This half-marathon is laps of pathways, woodland trails and fields. 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, that’s several times to sit down, put your feet up and fly down the hill faster. 

Festive fancy dress is optional but wholeheartedly encouraged as it adds to the festive fun!

About the Half Marathon

Once you’ve finished running and messing about on the slide you’ll be rewarded with a 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.
