Merton Farm, Canterbury, Kent, CT4 7BA
It's the beauty of the challenge, it's the stunning course... it's an irresistible racing gem.
This is a Nice Work race
This means that this is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.
This is one of the most popular events in the Kent sporting calendar. It is organised to support the Pilgrims Hospice and the race attracts a large Bank Holiday Monday entry to confirm its position as one of Kent's favourite half marathons. The course is challenging and covers the quiet country lanes around the outskirts of this wonderful city. Our thanks, as always, to the Canterbury Forest of Blean Rotary Club for their invaluable help in staging this race.
