Ciderthon aims to mix the elation of running with the taste of the ancestral drink, celebrating the culture of cider making and the beauty of Somerset scenery. 

Often the two activities are seen as mutually exclusive events, but after having such a great time at Marathon du Medoc in Bordeaux, I had to bring a piece of the fun to Somerset. But with a West Country twist. Join us, and #RunMilesDrinkCider

Much love,


Founder of Ciderthon
