Great course through the Kent countryside. Spectators giving plenty or encouragement along the course. The turnout in Leigh is fantastic. The volunteers were all very helpful. it's about a 15-20 min walk from the car parks.

The Tonbridge Half was great from start to finish. It was easy to get to, well organised beforehand so you knew what you were doing, and we had a nice smooth start. The course was perfect - pretty scenery, road closures pretty much all the way, enough hills to be interesting and challenging without being exhausting, and a nice long finish straight where you could see the flag but it was far enough away to let you get up a good sprint! Plenty of people along the course to cheer you on too. A perfect county-level Half, I would say. Definitely definitely coming back next year.

Great half marathon through the beautiful Kent countryside. Closed road course with challenging hills (lots of them!) not a PB course but rewarding. Very well organised and some great supportive spectators en route.

Really well organised. Not too busy. Great support. Highly recommend! Challenging but not to the point where it becomes unenjoyable.

Great challenging undulating course, always a good atmosphere. Can we get the hot showers in the mens changing rooms sorted?

Fourth time I’ve ran it now. Probably be more to come, has it’s every local to me. Undulating course and a little challenging, but good for a beginner wanting you move up from flat to something abit hillier :)

A tough course with endless rolling hills out and back. Disappointed with water stations using plastic cups and participants dropping gel wrappers - seriously people!

As usual well organised event on closed country lanes. Whilst the course is challenging (hilly) it’s very enjoyable with great scenery. Lots of friendly marshalls on route. Definitely one to do again.

The course profile looks super hilly! I don't know Tonbridge at all - is this race beginner friendly?

The course is definitely undulating and a little challenging, but if you're a beginner looking to move up from flat to something a bit hillier, it's a good one. The friendly marshals and nice scenery will help you keep going!
