  • Maidstone Harriers are pleased to host the Maidstone Marathon and Half Marathon after its successful revival in 2016. This popular accurately measured route takes in a rural Kent course featuring the challenging lanes in and around the villages of Boughton Monchelsea, Loose and East Farleigh. The route uses a single loop for the half marathon with the marathon runners completing a second loop.

    We had great feedback after we introduced the new course in 2016. Runners loved the undulations of the hills and felt a huge sense of achievement at the finish. If you're looking for a challenge, then this is it! One runner said 'It was challenging in parts, but great organisation and awesome marshals who were so supportive and encouraging'.

    There's a unique medal and race memento available for all finishers - plus prizes for leading runners and age category winners.

    • Did the 13 1 Miles in 2019

      Tough course but great for hill training. Not as many runners as I expected. The weather held off which was great.
    • Did the 13 1 Miles in 2018

      Route was 'undulating'... It would have probably been useful to know this before the race to train appropriately. Saying that, it's unlikely I would have signed up knowing how many hills there were.
