This is going to be the first event on a new route for us at Ramsgate, using a stretch of the Viking Coastal path and a bit of park and not much sea wall ,which might be a welcome break for some runners! There is a bit of a hill, well, a cliff, to run through, yes through (there is a tunnel) and it'll be a little bit convoluted to get the distance right, but it will be well signed and its on nice wide tarmac paths in the main. The course is 100% good surfaces with perhaps about 500' of climb for a marathon distance run, so slightly hillier than our usual coastal routes but nothing too severe. 4.42 mile loops.
The course runs around the tarmac cycle track but at no point crosses it so there are no traffic concerns to worry about. The surface is a high quality gravel surface in the main with the odd patch of potentially muddy bits if they’re wet but overall it’s an excellent running surface and should produce some fast times.
There are slopes rather than hills, so its not totally flat, each loop has maybe 100 feet of elevation rise, but there are some lovely woods to run by, ponds, grasslands, wet lands and some wild life to spot too! If its wet there might be a chance of some mud but the trails are high quality and drain well.
(4.37 mile loops ) Complete as many or as few as you wish within the 6 hour time limit.
