Agree. We used to have some gems around here. There was a Medway 10k which disappeared in the late 1990's based at Featherby School. There were also events like the Hempstead Marathon & half marathon. The Cliffe Woods 10 & 5 (miles); Lordswood 10 & 5 k; Rochester half marathon; RSME half marathon to name but a few.
Sunday traffic & traders have increased significantly since those times so it's good to have an organisation like Nice Works to get these events on. Any race secretary will tell you how much of a headache it is to deal with road closures, policing, red tape etc.
