Marathon Walk Stonehenge 1 day UK

About the Challenge

Join us on our rural marathon walk, taking in the world-famous sights of Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral as we trace a 26-mile route through the Wiltshire countryside.

This challenging day sees us setting off early from our atmospheric event hub, and takes us first through the market Town of Salisbury with its iconic Cathedral before heading into the rolling hills of Wiltshire. Wooded Valleys give way to the open expanse of Salisbury Plain as we approach the world-famous stone circle of Stonehenge. More valleys and woodland see us return to our start point and the completion of this fantastic challenge.

This is a tough event over the rolling downs and steep valleys that lie between Salisbury and Stonehenge and back. At 26 miles, it provides an enormous challenge for walkers but a huge sense of achievement!

There is also a half-distance option.

Marathon Walk Stonehenge Start Time: 6.30am registration for a 7-7.30am start

Half Marathon Walk Stonehenge Start Time: 9.00am registration for a 10-10.30am start

Start/finish Hub: TBC

Approximate Finish Time: Anytime between 2.30pm and 6.30pm

Detailed Information

  • Your trip will be led by experienced Discover Adventure leaders and support crew. Our leaders are selected for their knowledge and experience, friendliness and approachability, sense of humour and ability to safely and effectively deal with any situation that arises; they are also trained in first aid. You are in very safe hands with a Discover Adventure leader. The crew will have mobile phones and/or radios where appropriate, medical kit and other safety apparatus where necessary, as well as vehicle support.

  • Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.

  • Can I bring my dog?

    We regret that we are unable to accept dogs accompanying participants on our UK treks. This is because we cannot be responsible for their welfare. Invariably, dogs are not always as fit as they seem, especially in extremes of weather, and we cannot use our support resources to cater for ailing or tired dogs at the expense of participants.  We appreciate that some owners will feel that their dogs would not need any support, but we have learned from previous experience and now impose this as a blanket rule.

  • In the unfortunate circumstance that you need to cancel your booking, we would ask that you notify us in writing either by post or email.  Your cancellation will be considered effective from the date the notice is received.  Registration fees, amendment fees and insurance premiums are non refundable and, depending on your payment option and how close it is to your challenge departure date, you may be liable for a cancellation charge.

    Full details of cancellation charges can be found in the Terms and Conditions of booking.

  • We have a Passenger Portal which will give you more details of the challenge itself. It also enables you to see any outstanding information we need, the countdown to your challenge departure, see your outstanding balance, make payments and update your contact details. You can access this via the following link - Passenger Portal Log in.

Preparing for the Challenge

  • This is designed to be a challenge, and it is vital that you train sufficiently for it. We will supply you with a thorough training guide once you have registered. Training is all part of the preparation: inadequate training will impact on your enjoyment of the trip, and your chances of completing it. We expect all participants to train hard in advance, but we respect everyone’s limits and do not expect everyone to maintain the same pace. If you have concerns about your fitness or if you have reduced mobility please do contact us for a confidential chat about whether this challenge is appropriate for you.

  • We plan our trips around the optimal weather conditions, but could still be exposed to bad weather at any time. It is vital you are prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, with plenty of information, and we are always available if you need advice.

  • Travel insurance for UK weekends and one-day events is not compulsory but you might like to consider taking out cover in case of cancellation or loss of belongings.

    Once your travel insurance is arranged, just remember to let us know the policy number and 24hr medical emergency phone number which is provided by your insurers!
