Starting Line: Charing School

Each race will begin at 9:00 am


The event will take place at Charing School, School Road, Charing, Kent, TN27 0JN, about an hour and a half's drive from central London.

If you choose to take the train, there is a Southeastern service that will take you to Charing Station, conveniently only about a ten minute walk from the school itself.


If you drive to the race, we will have some parking available in the school lot. We advise carpooling if possible as parking is somewhat limited.


First Aid
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.

Entries are limited to 500 participants in each race.

Remember that even though most of the course takes place on extremely quiet roads, they are not closed, so watch out for cars as you go.

    A map would have been helpful

    The course was pretty hard, not helped by the wet conditions in the pilgrims way and the large hill at 12/ mile 25.
