The Brett Lydd 20 Mile & Half Marathon routes

The Half Marathon race will start on the main road adjacent to the Banks Sports Club in Dennes Lane, just off the High Street.

Participants will head out to the north of the town for a rural out-and-back route through the quiet lanes surrounding the town.

The 20 Mile Race follows largely the same route as the Half Marathon. However, runners for the 20 Mile event will also complete an additional loop through Brookland.

Both routes are pancake-flat and perfect for those looking to get a PB.

    Did the 20 Mile in 2018

    There are no toilets on the route, which for a 20-mile race is unacceptable. Very poor race with no atmosphere. Boring route in a depressing location.
  • Did the event in 2019

    Excellent event and great job given the windy conditions. Would recommend to anyone who wants to run with good people
  • Did the event in 2019

    Well organised. Great marshalls- supportive and kind in atrocious weather- 50mph winds- thank you,thank you
  • Did the 20 Mile in 2019

    Could have done with some more toilets, apart from that all good I really enjoyed the course, apart from the winds, and will be coming along next year.
  • Did the event in 2019

    Lovely flat and well organized race. Thoroughly enjoyed the countryside along the way. Staff and volunteers were great from start to finish. Thank you
  • Did the event in 2019

    This is a great race that's well organised and a pleasure to run. The course is across the Romney Marsh area and therefore totally flat - only hurdle were the fallen trees this year.
  • Did the event in 2019

    Really great flat half marathon along quiet country lanes. Well organised and marshalled throughout. Two bits of advice though: 1 - pick a day without wind as the course is very exposed and 2 - get there early for easy parking!
  • Did the event in 2019

    What strength and happiness and enthusiastic efforts from all marshals From sawing trees to non stop cheering and keeping us safe Thank you!
  • Did the event in 2019

    Very well organised although conditions on the day very challenging with winds and rain but the sun was welcome
  • Did the event in 2019

    Inspire of the extreme conditions - I wore a smile for the duration of the event. The area is beautiful and it was such a confidence boost completely my first ever 20mile event (5milws further than Ive ever run) on a flat, quiet course. The water stations manned by enthusiastic cubs and Brownies -with jelly bean treats - were fabulous at offering encouragement.
