Ciderthon Half Marathon

From the organiser
The Ciderthon is a half marathon with a cider taster at every mile, where you will be earning every step of your way. In completing the Ciderthon, you will become a part of the heart of Somerset, experiencing the very best cider from the very best producers. You will be introduced to a community of people who work hard, play hard, and run damn hard too. And as a team, you will do whatever it takes to get yourself, and others, to the finish line.
