  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Personally I enjoyed the Dymchurch 10k in February 2019. The weather was fine and sunny with quite a strong breeze. Lovely running by the the sea. Would have liked to see a couple more marshals on the route and maybe some markers for distance. The organisers were friendly and signing up online was hassle free

    HiThis was the first time I did this route but I was very disappointed. There was no "official" start and finish line as it was just spray painted on the ground and therefore hard to see on the way back. The route also came up short, i got 6.06 miles and I was not the only person that found it was short on their own personal gps watches. The route was nice and flat and the weather conditions were fine but personally I found it very boring which affected my race but this is my own opinion! In addition, as part of the advertising on facebook it stated there would be t-shirts handed out to all finishers but there were none. We did mention this to the race director at the time.

    Great event well run and the weather was good. Unfortunately nothing to do with the race my wife left her camera on a bench by the finish line if anyone has it could they phone 07881645440... Dave

    Please note typo in the title: Dymchuch 10kA lovely event, simply organised with minimal fuss. Paying for entry online was not totally straight forward. I managed it, but a friend of mine ended up giving up trying.Biggest shame was the course measured just 9.5k. The fact this was due to last minute alterations due to a hazard doesnt really explain why it ended up being 500m short. It cant be that hard to measure a course on a simple out and back, sea front route.Enjoyed it though all the same.

    Perfect running conditions for all the runners (light on shaw breeze)The first corner involved about 25 meters of deepish sand (not a huge issue)This should have been my quickest ever 10k (a big plus)But... the organisers made the corse 300m too short (and the corse could have so easily been made the proper distance (my main gripe). Over all, its a great run with huge potential for a PB, all that needs to be improved is the corse measurement, and chip timing would be good too (Id happily pay more to ensure those two things)
  • Did the 10k in 2018

    The start was fine most people settled into appropriate places for speed. I did stuck for a few seconds behind some slower runners but they parted as one of them started to go faster. But after the first 200m or so everyone was settled.
