The Farnham Pilgrim was awarded a trophy for the “Best New Event” after its inaugural running in 2010. Since that date it has been consistently highly-rated by participants, and Runners World places it in the TOP TEN marathons for 2015.

Come and see why the combination of a challenging cross-country race with what we believe to be unsurpassed support, attracts so many accolades.

Take the challenge of the Farnham Pilgrim Marathon or Half-Marathon!

Both routes are measured, multi-terrain, and mainly off-road, using footpaths and country lanes East of Farnham. Some sections follow the popular North Downs Way, in the footsteps of pilgrims ancient and modern. Other parts may be an interesting discovery, even for regulars to the area. The routes will not necessarily follow those used in previous years, but the hills will still be there, as will the variety of scenery (see the map for a broad outline of the courses). As ever, the challenge will be rewarded with classic views of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
