Slow Marathon 2017: Energised Landscape

14-16 April 2017

A 26 mile walk exploring our relationship to energy and the landscape

This year's Slow Marathon is part of artist Andrea Geile's project Energised Landscape, where she has been examining places of energy, innate or man-made, real or perceived, in the area southeast of Huntly. From Neolithic sites, to hill tops, to renewables and new pylon constructions. 

The route will begin near the Correen Hills, heading back to Huntly, exploring some of the ancient and contemporary sites of energy within the landscape on route. The walk will be followed by a day of discussion surveying sustainable energy in Scotland: where we are now and what the future might hold.

14 April 7pm: registration Gordon Arms Hotel
15 April 7am: Slow Marathon; start Huntly Square
16 April 11am: Slow Day: Energy talks

Tickets:
£25 Early Bird (till 15 Feb)
