Isla Marathon Walk
Sat 16 Jun, 7.00am, Huntly Square
part of the Moray Outdoor & Walking Festival
Slow Marathon, co-concepted with Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede in 2012, is an annual marathon length walking event, always leading to Huntly. Celebrating the human pace, it is both an endurance event as well as a poetic act that brings together friendship, physical activity and an appreciation of our varied landscape.
Part of the Moray Outdoor and Walking Festival, this marathon length walks was first tested during the annual Huntly Walking without Walls Slow Marathon in April 2018. It leads us along the river Isla from a place near Dufftown via Keith to Huntly. On the way we will see many different features of natural and historic interest, including Loch Park, Bitrophie church, Balloch and Bin forest, as well as the White Wood - a living monument to peace.
Book tickets here.
Note: while this route is relatively easy terrain, a marathon length walk is a strenuous undertaking. Good fitness is required.
