A Marathon with a difference!
We're going to have a bit of a different marathon at at Betteshanger Country Park in February 2019. So what's so different?
Firstly, when you sign up, you choose if you are a Mod or a Rocker. Which one you choose will then dictate which finisher medal you'll earn (we'll have one for each group...)
Then before the start we'll divide you up into the two groups and there will be a dance off, ah, OK then a coin toss. The winning group chooses which way to run, either clockwise or anti-clockwise, then depending on which group you're in will decide exactly which route you take!
We're using a new "hybrid loop" at Betteshanger, partly on the trails, partly on the tarmac track, on the trails you'll all run the same way, but on the tarmac loop, one group run clockwise, and the other anti clockwise to generally taunt, abuse, cajole or support the runners going around the track in opposite direction!
We'll have our usual standard of goody bag that you expect from us, so there will be chocolate and some other decidedly non-healthly, high calorie, yummy things that you'll have earned the hard way and will fully deserve after running 26.2 miles not to mention the "picnic" aid station you'll get to visit every few miles!
We put on marathons run exactly the way we wish they were all run. Low key, friendly and with most of the entry fee being spent on the runners, in addition £5 will be donated to Betteshanger Country Park from each entry fee.
