Our flagship and inaugural race starting and finishing at Detling village hall the runners will first head west on the North Downs Way. There is a small loop near Bluebell hill before heading back to Detling. They will then head east on the North Downs Way all the way to the Lenham cross before returning to Detling to finish.

The route is predominately trail with approximately 3 mile of road giving a total of 27.5 miles.

Expect it to be cold, muddy and with 4300ft of elevation, hilly with lots of steps. The race starts at 9am with an 8 hour cutoff.

This is tough course with almost zero chance of a marathon pb!
