    More info about parking on the day. however the guide when you get to the village was helpful.
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    Fantastic race set in a sleepy Kent village. This is what running is all about. I travelled around 50 miles to take part both this year and last and it was definitely worth it. Well organised and friendly.. I would always try to limit the numbers because the fact that the village is not swamped with people also adds to the appeal. Had a decent day out in Rye afterwards as well!
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    It was a good race but the main road at the start and especially the finish should be closed. Possibly an earlier start time and call it the Wittersham 5 mile
  • Did the 5 Mile in 2018

    Great course. Not sure there is much more to be done to improve it.
