Back by Popular Demand – The Thanet 20 Mile Road Race

The Thanet 20 road race is one of the largest road races in the south east and will take place on Sunday, March 1st 2015 from the Christ Church C of E Junior School, Ramsgate.  The race, organised by Thanet Roadrunners AC is the second biggest race in the club’s calendar and normally attracts around 500 entrants. 

The 2015 race is in memory of Ricki Savage who tragically died after completing the Dublin Marathon in 2013 will be known as the ‘Ricki Savage Thanet 20’. 

Adrian Smith, Race Director for the Thanet 20 said, ‘Thanet has hosted this race for many years and it attracts many runners from across the UK and occasionally some from the continent.  After a year’s break, the race is back and provides ideal training preparation for anyone undertaking any of the popular spring marathons such as Brighton and London.’ 

‘The race will start and finish at the Promenade on the Royal Esplanade in Ramsgate. The route will be taking in such pretty areas as the Ramsgate harbour and seafront, beautiful and acclaimed Broadstairs, the Viking ship at Cliffsend, Pegwell Country Park to name but a few sights, before the runners return to a triumphant and well deserved finish.’ 

‘Runners and spectators are actively encouraged to get involved as are any helpers/volunteers who could marshal or help at water stations on the route.’ 

He added, ’Entries are now available on our website at or via the popular Runners World website.’ 

‘We expect the race to be extremely popular so get your entries in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.’
