There has been a marathon on the tarmac track at Cyclopark Gravesend every year since 2012, firstly by the wonderful TZ Runs events and then latterly Inspire Races, unfortunately these events have now ended and it seems such a shame to let the venue be marathon free for a year! Whilst we appreciate that 17 laps around a cycle track in the DMZ between the old A2 and the new M2 isn't the world's most exciting run there are lots of logistical advantages, its a lovely venue and a cracking facility and once a year it isn't too bad!

Ghost of Cyclopark Marathon route

Cyclopark – 2.5km Loop

It’s 17 x 2.5km laps with a slightly short first one, you cannot possibly go wrong or get lost. Basically the Cyclopark “A” route, otherwise known as the longest possible loop! At registration we’ll provide you with a little punch card, as you go around each lap this will be punched and on the 17th time… you’re done!

  • No traffic. No cycles. No pedestrians or dog walkers as we’ll have the track to ourselves for the day.
  • Wide tarmac road, navigation free & perfect running surface.
  • Accurately measured course.
  • A hill of doom to walk up and a brilliant hill of lesser doom to run down if you’re so inclined!
  • An 8 hour time limit.
