The Apperley Quarter Marathon – AQM

The AQM is run over 6.55 miles (10.55km) around a varied course along local lanes and footpaths starting and finishing at the Cricket Club. The first edition of this running festival took place in 1983 and it has become a regular annual event which celebrated its 40th anniversary in fine style on 24 September 2023 when over 400 people took part including many enthusiastic youngsters who ran in the 1km long “Kiddython”.

Each AQM raises a significant amount for the “charity of the year” and for a variety of local community causes.

Thanks to the untiring efforts of the the local organising team, all the helpers on the day, the generosity of local landowners and event sponsors and of course the efforts of the runners themselves, the event continues to be a success after all these years. A large part of the local population is involved, participating, helping or cheering on the runners from the roadsides and the after event festivities at Apperley Cricket Club are enjoyed by all.
