New Event: The Ciderthon (and discount code)

Like the majority of runners, I love taking part in organised events and races. In my opinion, nothing beats the feeling of crossing the finish line of a race.

Last week, I received some information about a new event called the Ciderthon. As a cider lover, I was incredibly disappointed when I realised that I had already entered a 10k race on the same day.

The Ciderthon

The Ciderthon is a half marathon with a cider taster at every mile and will take place on Sunday 29th April in Wells, Somerset.


The event will be showcasing local ciders, raising money for Dorset and Somerset air ambulance while bringing runners from across the country to try a new challenge.

The Ciderthon starts at 11am and has a cut-off time of 5pm.

The route is one lap starting and finishing in Wells Market Place, Somerset. The route is undulating and multi-terrain with a bias towards road.

The Ciderthon is an untimed run, however, the roads will be closed and there will be stewards to support participants until the last runner goes past.

The event will be showcasing local ciders – I’ve checked out the website and the ciders that will be on offer look amazing.

How to enter

Tickets for the Ciderthon are available here and if you use the code EMMA10 you will receive a 10% discount.

With your ticket you will receive:

  • 13 x Cider tasters
  • Ciderthon medal
  • T-shirt

For more detailed information please check out the dedicated race website.

    ah! Sounds like a fun race! Too bad I’m not in the area though, Emma, guess what? I’m studying abroad at Cambridge next year. I’m going to hit you up for a pub crawl and all the advice!

      It sounds like a real fun race! Wow. Cambridge! That’s seriously impressive, congratulations. Cambridge is quite a long way from Wallingford, but it would be amazing to meet up for a pub crawl.

        Hmm. I thought you were in/near Cambridge. That must have been because of the race! Still, I’ll try to find a way. 🙂 And it’s not that impressive. It’s just through an Erasmus study abroad. Get into Cambridge?! Please. 🙂

        Don’t sell yourself short! The Erasmus study abroad scheme is impressive. I can easily get to Cambridge by train from Birmingham, it takes about three hours because the train stops everywhere. If I’m still working in Wallingford, you can always come and check out Oxford.
