Farnham Pilgrim Marathon ( or Half Marathon) has been described as possibly one of the prettiest trail Events in the UK. It is set to be one of the “must-do” events of the year again! The route is equally challenging but rewarding after all it is the Surrey Hills! 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.

This is no ordinary Trail marathon, Its more of a Pilgrimage taking the Pilgrims way and North downs Way, passing 5 churches, an abbey, 2 manor houses, Numerous ponds, rivers, old mills, vineyards, even Llamas on the Marathon course! with stunning scenery. It is a unique, bespoke event with the option of a Half Marathon Run, which is challenging but equally beautiful.

The Marathon halfway point, reaches the amazing St.Marthas church. Set in the beautiful Surrey hills, passing across the beautiful Pewley Down and one mile Path.

Very well organised race with plenty of support, aid stations and more than enough marshalls.

This is a really excellent event. Superbly organised with loads of water stations and marshals (all sorts of sugary snacks at the water stations too). The route is beautiful: fairly hilly, but beautiful. Not one for a PB, but a fantastic run.

This event is brilliant organised and very friendly. I was slightly apprehensive of the course knowing there were some stinker hills but nothing too horrendous with lots of downhills to make up your time.

A once in a lifetime marathon, never to be repeated! A brute of course but will leave you with a sense of achievement. Feed stations and their volunteers were top drawer. Organisers and marshals make this a special race.
