Escot House In Ottery St Mary

This Christmas Marathon certainly has the ‘Jolly’ touch! 

This marathon is extra special as we’ve added the ‘Jolly’ touch to it to make it completely unique. 

The Escot Christmas Marathon is the FIRST EVER MARATHON to have a waterslide!!

The 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, that’s 6 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 appreciate that not all of you will want a wet bottom on each lap, especially while running a 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 finale lap.

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

About the 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.
