Enter the Kent Coastal Marathon & Half Marathon 2018 Sponsored by County Solicitors

The Kent Coastal Marathon & Half Marathon sponsored by County Solicitors, is one of the most prestigious running events in the South East, taking either 13 or 26 miles of the most stunning and picturesque sights and landscapes through Ramsgate, Margate, Broadstairs and Westgate-on-Sea.   

The race organised by Thanet Roadrunners AC is considered to be one of the friendliest marathons to take part in and will see a large number of serious athletes as well as charity runners.  The event starts at 9.30am on Sunday 2nd September 2018, beginning and finishing at Palm Bay School, Cliftonville.  

As well as being a popular marathon/half marathon, every year is virtually a sellout; the event also provides excellent value for money.  Included in the entry price (affiliated entry £21/23 and unaffiliated entry £23/25) is a finishers medal, technical T-shirt, Chip timing, pacers at 1hr 45mins, 2hrs or 2hrs 15mins for the half marathon, baggage storage and a FREE professional finisher photo.  £1 from every entry will be donated to the race's official charity, the British Heart Foundation.

The course will start with a loop around Palm Bay before following a mostly coastal route through Broadstairs towards Ramsgate, heading back to complete the half marathon at Cliftonville.

Those running the marathon then continue through Margate, again mainly along the coast, before turning at Minnis Bay and heading back to finish at Palm Bay School.  There will be regular water stations along the route including gels at two stations in the second half for marathon runners. 

Terry Brightwell, Race Director, said,’ The Kent coastal marathon is always a great event, and we welcome the public to get out and give the runners a cheer when they pass them on the route.   The event is suitable for all abilities and allows you to see some of the beautiful coastlines in Thanet.’
