Bekkai Pilot Marathon

Bekkai Pilot Marathon

October 4th
(The first Sunday of October every year)

Full, 5k

Run down the Pilot Road lined with rolling hills and contented cows. Famous for dairy products, you get milk, ice cream and other complementary dairy products at the party the night before. You can also watch the two mascot cows take off at the start of the marathon.
There are only two distances, the full 42.195k and a 5k. At the end of the full, finishers get an extra large beach towel and a whole salmon as their reward. Not much to do in Bekkai but enjoy the views and the food.

You can get all of the details, in detail from this page.
