Giants Head marathon is a hilly, off road, tough race although the breathtaking scenery of the Sydling and Cerne valleys makes this challenging course a joy. It is a modest event with around 200 finishers which passes through some lovely Dorset countryside and around the world famous Cerne Giant. The race starts and finishes on the village green in Sydling St.Nicholas.
The course consists mainly of trails over very hilly challenging terrain. You will be well supported with water and aid stations every 3-4 miles and a cider station at 20 miles. Yes cider!
