Kielder Marathon goes virtual to support our Bright Northumbria

We’re thrilled to announce that a series of virtual Kielder Marathon races will take place including solo runs at distances from one mile to the full marathon, between Friday 2 and Sunday 4 October.

Every runner can earn a special Kielder medal and tote bag and a proportion of each entry fee will be donated to the Kielder Marathon’s official charity partner, Bright Northumbria.

The virtual Kielder Marathon events will include the full and half marathon distances, plus 10K and a special ‘Run Like A Legend Mile’.

Anyone who wants to take part can register online at and, with the help of a special app, record and submit their best time for a solo run at any time from 2-4 October.

All times that are submitted will be validated and results will appear online. Runners can tackle any or multiple distances – entry for each costs £12.50 and the price includes a bespoke medal and tote bag, with the option of adding a technical t-shirt or headband to the registration.

There will be prizes for the top three runners in all four events, plus spot prizes, and £2 from every entry fee will be donated to Bright Northumbria.

The Kielder Marathon weekend is organised by Events of the North, in conjunction with hosts Northumbrian Water, and partners including Northumberland County Council, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Active Northumberland.
