The Kent Golden Mile & 5K routes

Kent Golden Mile:

With no turnaround to contend with, the point-to-point Mile along the Dymchurch seafront is the perfect opportunity to let your legs fly as you speed to a new PB. Join hundreds of other runners to benchmark yourself against the best on the pancake flat course.


If you have energy leftover, take a jaunt in the 5K out and back race along the promenade. The race will be fast and flat, and will start and finish close to the Martello Towers.
