2020 sees the return of the University of Kent Canterbury 10k.
**NEW ROUTE IN 2020** The route still starts at the Pavilion at the University, covers some of the University grounds and also some of the historic "Crab and Winkle Way" in the lovely countryside on the edge of Canterbury. Lovely views across the East Kent countryside and the world famous Canterbury cathedral.
You may be wondering how this event will be managed to make sure you are safe in this "new" normal. We have lots of measures in place. To give you an idea of what to expect please check out the details here. We recently held the Smugglers 10k, and the runners gave us great feedback, so we are continuing the same at each event.
