Run Relatively Far!

E=MC2 and all that sort of stuff... For the science geeks amongst us, 2016 marked a significant anniversary being a 100 years since Albert Einstein published his final version of his theories on general relativity. A subject most of us have would (hopefully!) have heard of and many studied at school or college. And its one of the cornerstones of our understanding of space and time. The event medal was so popular that we're going to bring it back in 2017.

We're going to use a relatively boring course, that may well feel like it stretches to infinity around the Kent Coast near Margate, you'll be wishing you could run at light speed and discover how gravity affects runners legs going both up the slope at the end of each lap in a negative way and in a positive way on the way down!

But really we're just looking for an excuse to use some fantastic bling to mark the occasion! Custom medal 150mm wide with lots of goodies and you can have a relatively short run to earn them, or a relatively long run!

We've chosen this course for this event to distract you from the sea wall! For any of you that have run the Kent Coastal Marathon this is part of the "dreadful sea wall around the coast that's always into the wind" but not only that, we've extended it to the end of this section and we make you run it once each lap! But we promise its going to be a really good medal! Not to mention our usual standard of goody bag!


Probably the only medal you'll ever own with a 150mm ruler etched on the bottom!

The course is 100% good surfaces (lots of concrete I'm afraid but some tarmac), perhaps with a bit of seaweed thrown in as that always seems to get thrown up over one bit of the course,and its bound to be in to the wind, both ways. On the plus side if you like the views of the sea and a low cliff you'll be in your element as the course is 80% like that, there is a wind farm to look at, but its a long way out to sea. Even that's not very interesting after the first 30 seconds, and if its murky, well, you can't even see that.

Seriously, think about the medal..

This event forms part of a 10 Challenges in 10 Days Challenge, each event though is totally separate and you are free to just take part in one event, two events or however many you wish!
