Where and when
Charing C of E Primary School, School Rd, Charing, Ashford TN27 0JN, UK
The course consists of one single lap, starting and finishing at Charing School. Runners will join the Pilgrims Way for a section of the course and the vast majority of the route is flat.
Around the 4/5k mark there is a tough climb, however it'll be well worth it for the last section of the race which is largely downhill.
There will also be a children's race on offer.

I loved this race! Covid safe. Well organized. Friendly. Great course - set a new PB despite a challenging hill at half way. I will be back.
5.0Did the 10k in 2021
Not the usual excellent standard of organisation that we have learned to expect from Nice Work but this is very rare. Start time wasn’t as per the instructions nor was there a water stop on a warm night as per the instructions. But those aside the marshalls were all excellent, the course stunning and challenging, a great facilities and atmosphere. Lovely runners, a firm favourite with many of us year on year.
4.3Did the 10k in 2021
We received an email two days before saying that the start line will open at 6.30pm and remain open until 7pm. Then upon arrival we were told mass start at 7pm which would have been nice to know before hand so wasn’t rushing. Medals hadn’t turned up so organisers are going to post them out. The race itself was challenging but a nice course to get them legs working.
