'Tis the season! Grab your best Santa hat and enjoy a nippy 10k (or 5k) around the stunning Historic Dockyard Chatham! It's a Christmas treat not to be missed!
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.
This is the second year of this festive race working in partnership with the Rotary Club of Medway.
The event raises money to support local and International good causes so, not only will you enjoy a stupendous race-day but your entry really counts.
There is a choice of 10k & 5k distances around the historic Chatham Dockyards on the River Medway. This is one of the most stunning backdrops for a racing event, full of character and and one not to missed! The Dockyard's ships and buildings have been used for many movies and TV programmes so you will be running on some famous footsteps! The running route is steeped in the history but also takes in the restored Royal Navy buildings and ships which are now visited by tourists from all around the world.
There is plenty to enjoy in the race village, including a Christmas Market, disco, refreshments and charity stands. And, a Samba band will be playing to welcome all runners home! Come join the festive fun!
The Start/Finish of the race is located within the Dockyards and the course is completely self contained within the Dockyards making it virtually traffic free.
The race then takes you on laps covering a 2.5km circuit of the site.
5k runners will pass the start / finish gantry for two laps and the 10k entrants four laps.
10k / 5k
This year we will have a festive and dockyard themed bespoke medal for all finishers!
