This is my first Weald of Kent 10. Looking forward to it, plus a weekend away in our caravan

Ooh, it's supposed to be a lovely one this.  Enjoy it.  I have the North Downs 30k and Harvel in June so I am a bit busy.  I will do it next year.

I expect a good race report to let me know what I am missing.

SS - I does sound lovely and it is flat. So I am hoping for a 10 mile pb.

Yes, it is flat, with one short rise into Frittenden at about 7 miles.   The scenery is not dissimilar to that at Halstead and, provided it is not too hot, a PB is a definite possibility on this course.   Unfortunately, family commitments mean I shall be elsewhere this year (having run the last two of these), but it's a really lovely race - even if I do tend to drive straight past the place where it's held!

Sir CdeC - now that is a shame that you will not be there this year, we do have good taste in races

My club mate Ragged Sporran is doing this race now

I'm about to enter the "Forest 10" near Warminster on the same day; the first six miles of that are described as "hilly"...

Sir CofC - you like hills then
13/06/2009 at 11:57
Just to let you know the race is full and we won't be accepting any entries on the day, so if you haven't entered please don't travel.

If anybody knows of anyone who is dropping out of this race, could you let me know. I would love to run it and am very disappointed that it is full

Any comments from previous year runners about the course (hills, tricky bits, etc) welcome please as will be a newbie on this course on Sunday (thanks CdeC for yours).  

 Sorry to hear it's full discodiva. Missed out on York 10k for same reason when tried to book this week and that's not until August!

Ooo - very close now - I shouldn't be sitting here drinking wine!

Hi all - hope you enjoyed the race this morning. The provisional race results are now on the Maidstone Harriers website:

The race was really great! Thanks to Maidstone Harriers!

Paul - the race was brilliant but I had a cold so my race was not a pb. I hope to come back next year and get a pb.

Nice conditions - good course - only argument would be with the twists n turns at the end, but small point. Well done for getting the results up so quick.

A real gem of a run: great course, great run, great organisation, great scenery, great crowd at end. First time here but will be back next year for sure.

More climbs than I'd expected from the rw.co.uk description as 'flat' and missed target time by 21 secs but well worth the running and travel effort for this one. Plus the afternoon picnic lunch and gardens etc over at Sissinghurst the perfect way to make a day of it for my wife.

 Thanks also Paul H for getting the results up so quickly (aka Adrian Russell race no 389).

Gutted to see only 271 finishers when the race sold out.

 I'll get my entry in early next year.

Martian - yes get your entry in early next year. It always winds me up when a race is fall and runners drop out. I did it yesterday with a cold, feeling crap today thou.

My guess is that with race numbers up to 600 and the results being provisional there will be more results up in the next day or two for the back fo the field? Did feel like more than 271 people at the start but not a good judge of crowd numbers. Otherwise yes agree 329 dropping out is appalling.
