Slow Marathon 2020: Cabrach-Huntly

Event details

Tickets range from £0-£30. Please check website for more details.

Deveron Projects’ annual 42k/26 miles walking event.

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 and earlier marathon length walk designed by the artist, that led from Glasgow to the Dungavel Removal Centre, where many people are kept in the immigration orbit.

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.
