Event Description

The PodPlus Kent Spring Marathon

Including the Kent Spring Half Marathon

Sunday April 11th 2021 from 8.00am

Held under UK Athletic Rules. UKA Licence applied for. 

Join us for the return of marathon racing in Kent!

This year’s Kent Spring Marathon and Half Marathon will go ahead on Sunday 11th April 2021 – and, after too long in lockdown, we’re excited to welcome you back to our events.

This popular Kent Spring race sees a two-lap marathon and a single lap half marathon, covering the undulating, quiet, wide lanes outside Ashford in Kent plus a short section on the Pilgrims Way. Both races carry UKA licences and are accurately measured, which means that a good time for marathon runners could see you secure a ‘Good for Age’ time for a certain somewhat larger big city marathon!

Both races are suitable for runners of all abilities, from experienced athletes to those new to half or full marathon races. More to the point, this is known for being a friendly event, with cracking support from our enthusiastic partners at Ashford Striders who will be there to guide you safely around the route. The race always attracts great reviews and, for those of you who are experienced marathon runners, the event makes a refreshing change from some of the busy, big city affairs.

The scenic, rural route weaves its way out into the countryside north of Ashford and heads out through the nearby countryside in and around and the pretty Kent villages of Charing and Westwell. Aid stations will be plentiful and well-stocked!

So, why not celebrate the return of live racing, shake off those lockdown blues and join us for a new marathon challenge?

All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and there are prizes for first man and lady in both races plus trophies for the leading runners and age category winners.  

**Bespoke medal to all finishers**
** Prizes for 1st male and 1st female in both races **
Prizes/trophies for 1st, 2nd & 3rd Male and Female; 1st in all age categories from Vet 1 to Vet 8

Venue: Charing School, School Lane, Charing, Kent, TN27 0JN

Souvenir tech shirt available to pre-order for £12. Available on the day for £15
