Event now back for 2021, looking forward to getting this event back in the calendar.
The revised route and feedstop in 2019 were well received, as was the sunshine and Kent's fine countryside: along the Greensand ridge, through haunted Pluckley and historic Tenterden. There were extensive views over Romney Marsh before returning through Sissinghurst and Goudhurst with a long downhill at the end. At the same time a tremendous £3,800 was raised for the Air Ambulance. Feedstops for the 115km route will be at 55km and 85km. The new 85km route will avoid the Romney Marsh loop and have a single feedstop at 55km.
A reminder of the 115km route is below.EVENT HQ

We have our HQ at the Marden Station car park which is also the official parking location for the event. This will enable us to have an open air and be well spaced out at the start and end of the event.
This event is organised by Duncan Edwards and Bob Watts aided by a team of two dozen dedicated helpers.
