About this Event

NOTE: In the coming weeks we will decide whether- in the light of the COVID 19- we are able to run Slow Marathon in a safe way this year. The event is therefore not cancelled so far. Do contact us if you have concerns or ideas.

This year, our marathon length walk will be designed with artist Iman Tajik. Through Bordered Miles, we are looking at issues surrounding migration, borders and landflight - past and present in an area in Scotland that has been depopulated through political activity, while many say our country is full.

The Cabrach – Huntly route complements an earlier marathon length walk designed by the artist, that led from Glasgow to the Dungavel Removal Centre, where many people are detained in an uncertain orbit of the UK immigration system.

Fri 12 June, 6pm: Pathmaker's Gathering - Gordon Arms Hotel, Huntly

Mandatory registration, featuring discussion on Bordered Miles with artist Iman Tajik.

Sat 13 June, 7am: Slow Marathon - Meet at Huntly Square

26 miles through the empty landscapes of the Cabrach to Huntly.

About Slow Marathon:

Slow Marathon, co-concepted with Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede in 2012, is our annual walking event. Celebrating the human pace, it is both an endurance event as well as a poetic act, that brings together friendship, physical activity and an appreciation of our varied landscape.
