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 ancient and contemporary sites of energy within the landscape. 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.

We have linked with Little Sun for 2017's Slow Marathon, a social business and global project found founded by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen to bring clean, reliable, affordable energy to the 1.1 billion people in the world living in off-grid areas without electricity. Pick one up from us at Slow Marathon weekend!
The Slow Marathon is now an annual event run by Deveron Projects and is walk of marathon distance (26 miles / 42km) exploring the Aberdeenshire countryside. It was first initiated by Mihret Kebede through her project with us in 2012.
