Maidstone Harriers are pleased to host the Maidstone Marathon and Half Marathon after its successful revival in 2016. This popular accurately measured route takes in a rural Kent course featuring the challenging lanes in and around the villages of Boughton Monchelsea, Loose and East Farleigh. The route uses a single loop for the half marathon with the marathon runners completing a second loop.
We had great feedback after we introduced the new course in 2016. Runners loved the undulations of the hills and felt a huge sense of achievement at the finish. If you're looking for a challenge, then this is it! One runner said 'It was challenging in parts, but great organisation and awesome marshals who were so supportive and encouraging'.
There's a unique medal and race memento available for all finishers - plus prizes for leading runners and age category winners.
