It is a resurrected race and the start and finish locations are yet to be confirmed, so I'm not sure if even if someone has done this before it will be the same course as previously.
What I do know is that Nice Work are overseeing it and their races are always excellent. We have, as a family, probably entered their races almost hundred times and are yet to be disappointed.
May well do this one as well.
Count me in, entry sent off today
okey cool well im not from canterbury im in Telford, but have been to Canterbury many times as have family in Herne bay, just wondering as i dont have many hills over this way like u do, what would be the best incline to have the running machine on at the gym?
We will shortly be able to confirm the route but I can tell you that it will incorporate the bulk of the course used when the race was last run in 2010. The main difference is the location of the start and finish which will now be at Merton Farm - close to the rugby club. The last time the rugby club was used it was accepted that the race had outgrown that venue, so a change was needed.

Am local to Canterbury..never run a half marathon before so thinking of making this my first.. advisable???

First half marathon (normally do 5-6milers), thought i'd have a go at this as i'm local (Herne Bay).
Big thanks to Tom for the course, will try to get out and have a go over the coming weeks.
Anybody got any tips from past experience?
Does anyone know if this race will be chipped?
