"I would like to congratulate everyone involved in the Tonbridge half marathon on Sunday. It was well organised and a great friendly atmosphere. It was only my 2nd half marathon and my 1st at Tonbridge but will definitely enter again next year. The volunteers were friendly and supportive and the Hildenborough scouts playing the music in Leigh were a great boost! "
