Route information
Experience the stunning coastline of Herne Bay and the traditional seaside town of Whitstable in Kent by running 5k, 10k or a half marathon. Beginning and ending at Hampton Pier in Herne Bay, the out-and-back course is fast and flat, heading along the waterfront and treating runners to amazing views. Highlights include Studd Hill Beach, the Long Rock nature reserve and Tankerton Beach, with its colourful bathing huts.
The 5k consists of an initial 2.5k run stretch before runners turn back, racing along the beachfront to the start point. The 10k is a similar 5k out-and-back route. Half marathon runners will complete an initial 1.1k out and back section towards Hampton before coming back past the start line to do the full 10k section twice.
