Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway
Take on the RH&DR Half Marathon challenge and help preserve the history and heritage of Kent's steam railway.
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.
The 2023 Virtual Half Marathon is here!!
The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway has been running steam locomotives across Romney Marsh for almost 100 years.
The Supporters Association is raising money to help keep these wonderful feats of engineering running and this virtual half marathon will raise funds for Typhoon.
Typhoon was designed by Henry Greenly and was delivered to the railway in 1927 and is now due an important overhaul to help preserve it and keep it running.
So – get your walking (or running) shoes on and take part in October to help with the overhaul of this wonderful locomotive and then – why not visit the railway on 21 st and 22 nd October and visit the wonderful Autumn Gala?
You can sign up to the virtual at any time but you must complete the run between 12th October - 12th November.
You can challenge yourself to complete this distance in one go or finish it over several runs.
This year Typhoon takes pride of place on our medal.
Once you have completed the challenge, we will send your bespoke medal out to your home address.
Please read the race instructions that will be sent to you after booking.
How do I take part?
The event is open to everyone of all ages and abilities and can be completed by running or walking, either indoors or outdoors, in one session or over multiple sessions. It's easy to take part, once you have entered the race we will send you a step-by-step guide. It couldn’t be easier!
