Escot Christmas

Half Marathon

Sunday 22nd December 2019 8:30am

Escot House In Ottery St Mary

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

This half-marathon is laps of 4.4 miles 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 3 times 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’ll also have a “Jolly Gin Bar” where Andy and Mike will serve you a tipple of mulled gin at the top of the slide.

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 muff and a scrumptious handmade pudding wrapped in it’s own pudding cloth made by the local award winning Georgie Porgie’s Puddings.
