The ‘Sell Out’ Newcastle Way is the ultimate marathon. You want hills, stiles, mud, nettles, landmarks, country parks and woods? We got them! There is even some tarmac for the road lovers. The marathon (approx. distance) starts at Mow Cop in North Staffordshire, winding its way through Kidsgrove, Newcastle and Madeley, before finishing at Market Drayton. Please note: The route is way marked and signed, but navigation is your responsibility.
You will be supported along the way with three feed stations.
Once at the finish put your new t-shirt on, dangle the bling and experience a complimentary Joules beer.
