Event Overview: This popular Kent Spring race sees a two-lap marathon and a single lap half marathon, covering the undulating, quiet, wide lanes outside Ashford in Kent plus a short section on the Pilgrims Way. Both races carry UKA licences and are accurately measured, which means that a good time for marathon runners could see you secure a ‘Good for Age’ time for a certain somewhat larger big-city marathon! Both races are suitable for runners of all abilities, from experienced athletes to those new to half or full marathon races. More to the point, this is known for being a friendly event. The race always attracts great reviews and, for those of you who are experienced marathon runners, the event makes a refreshing change from some of the busy, big city affairs. Course Details: The scenic, rural route weaves its way out into the countryside north of Ashford and heads out through the nearby countryside in and around and the pretty Kent villages of Charing and Westwell. The Kent Spring Marathon & Half Marathon course is an undulating, multi-terrain course. The final 1.5k of the race is downhill so fast finishes are guaranteed. Aid stations will be plentiful and well-stocked!
