We are delighted to announce a brand NEW race at the stunning Doddington Place Gardens, near Faversham in Kent – The Doddington Place Gardens 10k & 5k race is on Saturday 1st May 2021. Doddington Place Gardens is a stunning Edwardian Estate and has featured in movies, tv shows, and other media publications. The finish-line is not one to be missed - taking you along the long driveway to the gates of the stately home. This stunning venue is a self-contained course and is the ideal venue for a Covid-safe event. There is plenty of parking on-site and the secure, traffic-free, undulating route uses the trails surrounding the estate. The 10k is two loops and 5k runners will do one lap. The route is mostly on trail and is a perfect race for all those looking for a Spring Challenge! We are also pleased to announce we will be offering a Canicross option for those who wish to run with their 4 legged friends. We even will have some special treats available for pooches at the finish! All finishers will receive a bespoke medal. There will be trophies awarded to the leading runners and age category winners. There will also be prizes for leading runners in the Canicross events. We will be hosting two starts, a morning race and another in the afternoon: Morning event – 9am to 10.30am Afternoon event – 12.00 to 1.30pm Canicross entries will be starting from 1.00 pm. The race will be held under the new Covid -Safe Guidelines, which have proved popular with runners as we still manage to retain all the buzz of a physical race. We have successfully developed a number of new procedures which are designed to ensure our races will be Covid-secure and ensure the safety of our runners, staff and the general public.
