Let's have 'a lark'
..well, a barrel of Larkins ale from the Larkins brewery at nearby Chiddingstone, please, Mr Race Director.
The 'Fosters' in the beer tent is better than provided by most races, but if you were to go the extra distance and get real ale in, this could just get my vote as the best race in RW's UK 2008 survey.
I did this one for the first time last year...will be encouraging some of my running buddies to join me as I loved it.......
yes, I have to agree.
after doing about four of the last six years, it's a fixture I've come to look forward to - it has a low-key village fete atmosphere about it all, and it's nice to have a race at that time of the weekend, leaving Sunday free for a bit of a lie-in.
oh, and the beer of course!
This looks like a good one to do as my second race, especially as I was born in Meopham, sort of know the area.
Having just done the 7Oaks7 that was descibed as undulating, how undulating, incomparison is this run.
did this last year and what a fab day. hot and sunny and v v friendly. yep, i agree, ale would be better than fosters on the finish line.....in fact organic bottled cider at about 8% would seriously improve my top 70 placing last time round!! LOL!! there are a couple of long drags and tight turns and the surface varies from road to woodland (in the shade) pathway but i would describe it as undulating rather than hilly. fantastic and will be sending in my entry form soon
it's cider o'clock in harvel!!
I've done this one for the last 3 years, it's fab and always a warm day.
I'm doing it again this year.
Sound great, beer on the run, not to bumpy what more could you ask for. Count me in.
Undulating? Well, it's not entirely flat, but even undulating is pushing things a bit imho...
Lovely race, unfortunately unable to make it this year...
Im up for the heavy stuff instead of the recylced left overs of the night before...
Just need to find a driver now (drink and run is OK, drink and drive is not!)
I hear through the grapevine that a whole bunch of runners from Dartford Roadrunners maybe attending... just for the alocholic beverages.
I'd go if I can hitch a ride from someone from there!
I want to beer!!!
Does anyone know how to get to Harvel by public transport from London?
I'm entered for this one.
Ran this the last 2 years and loved it. Dragged two friends along last year and hoping to drag a few more along this year.
...as much as a rabid dog can take..
