262 miles over 10 days around Windermere!

Back in 2007 Sir Christopher Ball, a Fellow of Brathay Trust, suggested that the Brathay Windermere Marathon incorporates a 10 marathons in 10 days endurance running event.

In its first year eight dedicated athletes established benchmark times and developed a model of support required to complete 10 marathons over consecutive days. The Brathay 10in10 is now regularly described as “….the UK’s ultimate endurance running event.”

Guinness World Records have recognised the fastest 10 marathons on consecutive days as a category. Steve Edwards established the initial world record time in 2008, completing the event in an impressive accumulated time of 35hrs 20’45”. At the 2009 event a new record was set by Adam Holland who ran the 10 marathons in 32hrs 47’03”. Adam returned in 2010 and knocked a further 2.5 hours off his record, clocking a time of 30hrs 20'54" - a staggering average time of 3hrs 02'05" for each marathon.

Legendary fell runner Joss Naylor, MBE, will again be supporting the event as Patron of the 10in10. Joss is on the starting line and sees all the runners’ off for their first marathon and will be on the finish line to welcome them back after running 262 miles over 10 days.

Together with the Brathay Windermere Marathon the event has raised over £1million since 2007 to help some of the UK’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people. The young people Brathay works with are inspired by the huge dedication and commitment required to run 10 marathons in 10 days.
