Inspired by the Marathon du Medoc, the Marathon du Malton 10K returns to the streets of Yorkshire’s foodie town on 17 September, 2023.

“Britain’s Tastiest 10k”, the Marathon du Malton 10K takes runners and walkers around the fields surrounding Malton with food and drink stops on the way.

Choose from local beer or gin, and roast beef served with Yorkshire Puds, washed down with great wine. There will also be macarons made by the UK pastry champion.
