HERO Classic Marathon
The Classic Marathon really is the daddy, having kicked off the long-distance historic rally as we know it in June 1988, as the brainchild of the late Philip Young. Stirling Moss drove an MGB in that first event, inspiring a new genre that is stronger now than it’s ever been. Which of the rallies is best? That’s very much about where to go, and how you like your balance of driving and relaxing, but we favour the Classic Marathon for its emphasis on endurance while still allowing just enough time to socialise and enjoy the luxury accommodation, for the spectacular scenery along the carefully chosen routes (different for each biennial running of the Marathon) and for the super-efficient running by the uber- experienced HERO team.
