This ever popular event has reached its 31st year!! This is the only race in the world with clay medals made by Canterbury Pottery!! This race sold out in 2016 and 2017, so act fast to guarantee your space!

A particularly scenic route around the beautiful east Kent countryside. Starting out at the Recreation Ground in Wingham the route follows quiet country roads taking in some of the prettiest villages in Kent. This officially measured course is undulating and has in the past produced some quick times, so PBs really are possible!
