The Tenterden 5 Mile course is an undulating, looped route, but with no substantial hills. The final mile is downhill meaning a fast finish is guaranteed. The route will be officially measured and carries a certificate of course accuracy.
The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows, as well as being marshalled throughout. Please note that the roads will only be closed for the start of the race and although they are quiet lanes there is a chance you may meet a vehicle on the route.
St John Ambulance or another medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.

The Tenterden 5 Mile takes place at Wittersham Football Club and is accessible by car and, of course, on foot and by bike.
Wittersham is a small village in Kent located around 5 miles from Rye and 5 miles from Tenterden. There are several roads and footpaths leading to the village; however, we would recommend cycling or driving to the event.
There will be some car parking available at the Race HQ at the football club, which is located on the main street, just past the turning for The Street.
The closest railway station is Rye which is around 5 miles away, so you will then need to get a taxi or cycle to the event.
