The Brett Lydd 20 Mile race is an ideal event for all those training for London, Brighton or other Spring marathons. Likewise, the Half Marathon is perfect for Spring marathon training.
The courses use the same fast and flat route on wide, pancake-flat lanes surrounding the marsh town of Lydd, and PBs are highly likely. Runners of all standards are welcome and race profits are donated to the Mayor of Lydd's Charity fund.

The Brett Lydd 20 Mile & Half Marathon routes
The race will start on the main road adjacent to the Banks Sports Club in Dennes Lane, which is found just off the High Street. Participants will head out to the north of the town and cover a rural out-and-back route through the quiet lanes surrounding the town before making their way back to Lydd to finish at the Sports Club. The route is pancake-flat, will be officially measured and carries a certificate of course accuracy.
The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows, as well as being marshalled throughout. Please note that the roads will only be closed for the start of the race and although they are quiet lanes there is a chance you may meet a vehicle on the route.
