As Spring unfurls into Summer, get ready for another spellbinding edition of the Ashford Striders Charing 10k!
This is a Partner race
This means that we are working with a host Partner Organisation and provide timing and/or race management services for their event.
A Friday evening race event that all the family can enjoy, with a heartwarming community vibe. This race takes advantage of lighter Summer evenings and provides a spellbinding route through the pretty Kent village of Charing, exploring country lanes towards Westwell and a stretch along the Pilgrims Way. The Ashford Striders welcome and encourage runners of all abilities so there's no cut off time, and fantastic support from the local community and marshals will spur you through every twist, turn and incline to the finish.
This is a single lap looped course running along quiet country lanes with a stretch along the Pilgrims Way. Flat or slightly undulating for most of its route, there is a tough hill at 4/5k that will prove a test for most. But, don't be put off as most of the last portion of the race is flat or downhill. You'll enoy super support and great views.
For those of you who have taken part in this race before, you'll notice that the race has a different venue and will now take place from the Charing Playing Fields. We're very much looking forward to launching from this brand new venue and hope that you'll join us as the Charing 10k enters this super new chapter.
