Back for 2022. This is such a good event, and one of the most socialable in our calendars. Lovely surroundings, great food and an amazing atmosphere. Offering a choice of 10k or 5k with wine sampling stations around the two courses!!
It's back in 2022. It's a unique event for Kent, taking place in the picturesque surroundings of the Gusbourne Vineyards. There is a great atmosphere at this event, with the wine stops, mini Event Village and plenty of space to relax and enjoy the surroundings when you have finished. We are delighted to be working with Gusbourne to bring you this event.
There is a choice of a 10k or 5k route around the estate. The terrain is off-road and has some hills, but the views more than make up for the effort. On both the 5k and 10k there will be opportunities to taste some award-winning English Sparkling wine - so over 18s only for this one.
EVERY finisher will get a great medal to mark the occasion too.
For the runners, their families and friends, Gusbourne are offering a limited number of short guided tours around the estate, lasting 45 mins, for a preferential price of just £5 per person, redeemable against any purchases of wine on the day. Starting at 11.30 and 13.30, each tour will be hosted by a member of Gusbourne staff who will give you an insight into how they grow the grapes and make their award-winning English sparkling wines. Two of their wines will be poured to accompany you on your way around the tour, with soft drinks available as an alternative.
Bookings for the tours will are open now and a link will be sent with your entry confirmation.
