Course Details

This accurately-measured course starting on the Leas, down at steep hill onto the Road of Remembrance and through the coastal park before an out and back section to Hythe and back again. There will be mile markers along the route and it will be fully marshaled. Lead cyclists will precede the first runner and follow the last runner. Please be aware of any other promenade users as we do not have exclusive use.


The Race Headquarters will be within the Grand Hotel and will be clearly signposted. The start/finish area will be on The Leas immediately outside the HQ and signs will be clearly posted to direct you. We would encourage runners to park at the Leas Cliff Hall car park approximataley half a mile from the HQ. Limited parking is available around the Hotel.
