The marshals were all very good and friendly. The course is challenging but it is lovely to be in the Kent countryside.

Tough and unattractive course with a bottleneck for the first 1km as you have 600 people running around a park footpath and much of the last 1km also all on park footpaths. They also disqualified my mate without even telling him or warning him as they said he was seen wearing headphones !!
Exciting Course!
