This friendly but competitive, beautiful but tough race packs a lot into its five-mile out-and-back route. Tracing a path through the beautiful Kent countryside, the Harvel 5 covers tarmac, woodland, rocky slopes and all the mud a keen cross-country competitor could wish for.
With a field of 800 runners, beer waiting at the water station for thirsty runners and a mini village fete in full swing at the finish, it has a party atmosphere that's hard to beat.
