Inspired by the community response to the 2014 Night Time Marathon, it was inevitable that we would organise a second event, this time re-named as the “EPIC Moonlight Marathon”.
The 2015 event sold out within 3 weeks, we had a total of 80 spaces available to runners, with the spaces covering Marathon, Half-marathon, 10km and 5km distances.
The formula for the event is simple, start the marathon distance at 2am in St Peter Port and collect Half-marathon, 10km and 5km runners as you run the course, which covers the main coastal areas of Guernsey. This year we started and finished in Market Square, with support from our sponsors we were able to provide all runners with an Intersport Goodie Bag and Sueco provided a warm cup of Mulled Wine at the finish.
At the end of the Marathon around 50 of us enjoyed a pre-ordered hot breakfast at Le Petit Bistro, which was the perfect finish to a night’s exercise.
Just under £1000 was raised from the 2015 EPIC Moonlight Marathon, which went towards This Is EPIC projects in Uganda.
