In 2019 there will be a new route for this 115km sportive through some of Kent's fine countryside, along the Greensand ridge, through haunted Pluckley and historic Tenterden. There will then be extensive views over Romney Marsh before returning through Sissinghurst and Goudhurst with a long downhill at the end. There are feed stops at 55km and 85km. At the same time help raise money for the Air Ambulance (over £5,000 raised in 2018!)
