Take on the whole of the challenging, yet beautiful, Monument Marathon in a day as a Runner or Hiker with this fully supported and guided endurance event. This challenging 26 mile loop connects 6 of Bury's historic Towers. Mostly on trail paths, you'll pass through country parks, along waterways, as you visit the 6 towers of our spring Tower Tour. Bradshaw Hall, Tentering Tower, Radcliffe Tower, Turton Tower, Grant's Tower and Peel Tower. Like all of our events, this is NOT a race: this event is simply about completing the distance with the camaraderie of other like-minded people around you – there should be no desire to ‘beat’ anyone or break any records and our friendly guides will be running / hiking the whole route with you to offer a supportive pep talk when required. However, we also won’t be offended if you do want to push on ahead without us. Three well-stocked, aid stations will be provided along the route. Finisher Tower Tour T-shirt will be awarded to all those that complete the route. What you must bring to the event: - Personal fueling supplies (we will have well-stocked aid stations, but please do not rely solely on these) - Waterproofs and running / hiking clothes suitable for the weather conditions - Ultra running belt or backpack with the ability to hold 1L of fluid - Fully charged mobile phone - Money for emergencies
