The Hildenborough Road Races

The Hildenborough Road Races are held annually on the first bank holiday Monday in May in this picturesque Kent village.

There are races to suit all abilities: 10 mile, 5 mile, 2.5 mile on road and shorter off-road races of up to 1 mile. 

The 10 and 5 mile races consist of a circular road route that leads away and back to the village, the 10 mile race is two loops of the 5 mile course.


The two shorter distance races are a 2.5 mile road race for those aged 11 and over (families are encouraged to run together), and ¼, ½ and 1 mile off-road races for those in primary school year 6 and below. The 2.5 mile race starts alongside the longer 10 and 5 mile races at 2.30pm. The junior off-road races are run on grass around the recreation ground and start from 12.00pm.

Nice Work are responsible for Chip Timing & Entry Management Services for the event.

First Aid
First Aid 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.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Presentations will take place approximately 45 minutes after the first finisher.

Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.
