we covered the cattle grids last year but the 6mm ply wasn't up to it so this year its being doubled to 12mm - should be enough ! There is still some standing water on parts of the path but barring any more long periods of heavy rain it should disappear .
we do put on the A20 half and full marathons - the full marathon has had nothing but praise from experienced marathonners for the facilities , course layout and aid stations which is probably why its growing in popularity every year !
You will have to go a long way to find another race that begins with a train ride but this one does - its only a 9 minute journey but what a great way to start a run ! The path is a mixture of grass , flattened stones and tarmac and the scenery is amazing - under and over bridges , stiles and kissing gates all form part of the challenge yet last years winner clocked just over 30 minutes for the run - brilliant ! The supporters lined the footbridge over the Medway in Maidstone last year to give all the finishers a cheer - most welcome .
