Event summary

We never seem to celebrate St Georges Day the same way that the other nations do that form the United Kingdom. So to do our little bit to rectify this and so that we can all celebrate being English or celebrate the English way of life we're going to have a very small "English" marathon where we can show a bit of English pride! The theme is going to be red and white and we encourage all runners and helpers to wear these colours (its not compulsory but would be appreciated), military, St George, Dragons, Knights Templars, that kind of thing. English! Fancy dress, an England shirt, anything like that! We're going to have an English style aid station, (in addition to the usual goodies that we provide!!) and a medal that is going to be the pride of your collection! It's going to be huge and functional...

Route description
Route description

The total elevation gain is probably sub 100' for the entire marathon. Navigation is simple, always hold on the path nearest the sea (there are several parallel paths so you'd end up on the same route, but would be slightly cutting the course short.)

The first turn around is right opposite Walmer Castle, we'll have that marked, you'll then run along the whole length of Deal sea front, along the promenade past Deal Castle, Deal Pier, the newly renovated sea defences before finally turning around at Sandown Castle (though you'll be forgiven for missing this one as it was turned in to part of the defences long ago).

How to get there

Waterfront, Kingsdown Rd, Walmer, Deal CT14 7LL, UK

Where do I park?
There is a large free car park a few yards from the start/finish. Kingsdown Road, Walmer, Kent, CT14 7LH - the car park opens at 0700. There are actually three car parks very close together, the sat nav will likely bring you out at Granville St, turn left and park in the main car park, please park in the big car park as the local dog walkers like to use the little ones
