All distances will journey through sites and scenes from the epic trilogies including some locations previously only ventured to by wizards and never-before accessed by the public. Participants will roam through the picturesque village of Hobbiton, through Gandalf’s Cutting, past the Sackville™ Orchard and up to Bag End before weaving down to Bagshot Row and past the sparkling lakefront. If time allows, stop for a brief refreshment at The Green Dragon™ Inn before the final leg of your adventure to the finish line across from The Shire’s Rest™. Learn more about the course here.
All participants will receive a specially designed Middle-earth Halfling Marathon medal with additional Middle-earth prizes for winners in all race distances.
