The flattest marathon you may ever find!

In our quest to bring you ever flatter marathons on even more mud free courses we have found perhaps a near perfect example of a flat, fast, car free marathon course on the Viking Coastal Trail on part of the sea defence wall heading towards the ruins of Reculver Castle.

The route is an approximately 6.58 mile out and back that you'll complete four times on near dead flat tarmac and concrete, the total elevation gain is I calculate, or more correctly my Garmin calculates as 16 feet. In total, not per out and back!

Having completed lots of marathons we believe we know what it takes to put on an enjoyable marathon for the fit, the dedicated and the hardcore long distance runners. And for those, like myself, who fit none of those categories, we'll do our best to get you round!

This event forms part of a 10 Marathons 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!

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. Please explore the races and consider joining us in Kent for a marathon or two.
