This ever popular event has reached its 34th year!! This is the only race in the world with clay medals made by Canterbury Pottery!! The piggy pottery medals are a must-have souvenir of the event and a much talked about momento. This race has sold out for the last 5 years, 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!
This event has such a great atmosphere with the Event Village next to the start/finish. It’s one to stay and enjoy and to bring the family along!
There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female in the 10k and 5k, 1st male and female VET40, 50 and 60 in the 10k.
