Following yet another fantastic year in 2018 the Tonbridge Half Marathon returns for a 9th time in 2019. The route is an accurately measured pan shaped course starting in south Tonbridge. It will take runners along closed roads with plenty of crowd support especially through the attractive village of Leigh, both on your way out and again on the way back, and when you finish back in Tonbridge. There will be four water stations on the course with toilet facilities. The race is managed under licence by Nice Work on behalf of Tonbridge Half Marathon CIO. The race will once again be looking to attract runners of all abilities, from experienced athletes to those new to half marathon running. All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and souvenir technical t-shirts will also be available to purchase for £8.00. Prizes/trophies are awarded to leading runners and age group winners The venue offers changing, toilets and baggage, plus a race village including medal engraving and refreshment facilities. There is plenty of parking in the town centre car parks, a 5 minute walk away. All race profits will be donated to Kent Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance and West Kent Mind, together with other charities supported by Lions and Rotary. The race attracts over 1000 participants - so an early entry is advised. Entries will open at midnight on New Year’s Eve. The event is run under UK Athletics rules and is a BARR Gold Graded event, awarded for race excellence.
