Route information
Terrain Multi-terrain
Elevation Undulating
This will be a looped course, with marathon runners completing it twice and half marathon runners once.
The event will take place around the quiet Kent country-roads, however, they will not be closed for the race so please remain vigilant of any vehicles on the course.
In parts, the route will be run on mixed-terrain tracks, with a small section joining the Pilgrims Way. The course is naturally undulating - get set for a fast finish with the last 1.5k being downhill.
It's worth noting that in 2019, this event was a Top 10 Finalist of the Best Marathon in the UK at the Let's Do This Challenge Awards!
