We're using, the very pleasant King's Wood which is in the heart of Kent between Ashford and Canterbury. It'll be a moderately challenging trail run as its not a flat place but there are some lovely downhills to make up for the ups. A marathon type distance would have around 1600' of climb. It's really very, very nice here, which is why we're holding a mid-week event in March here as its so popular its about the only time of year the Parks people are happy with us being here as otherwise its just too full of people! It's all lovely woodland, decent trails and hills which will make for a very pleasant trail run.

We're not hitting the Book Day day exactly, but we're close, as we're limited for dates but we're using this for a theme mainly as we had the concept for the medal and so created this challenge to tie in with this. I've always loved books and I know folk like a bit of fancy dress, so that is very much encouraged, though absolutely not compulsory, but if you're looking for an excuse to dress up as one of your favourite characters then here is a reason!

The event will be a six hour timed challenge event. Complete as many loops as you wish within the time limit. Run one lap, a half marathon, a marathon, an ultra!

The Book Day Challenge

2015 marked the 150th Anniversary of the initial publishing of one of the world's best loved books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and to celebrate this we're holding a variation of the Caucus Race as was first mentioned in the famous book 150 years ago! Our 2015 event was such an overwhelming success that it returned in 2016 & 2017 and is now an annual fixture!

The principle is that you run as far as you like, and everyone is a winner! Fancy dress is encouraged and of course there'll be a Mad Hatter's Tea Party at the aid station! Complete as many 3.85 mile loops (on the Folkestone to Dover road) as you wish in a 6hr time limit.
