County Solicitors Kent Coastal Marathon and Half Marathon (Final Preparations)

With just a few day left until the Kent Coastal Marathon & Half Marathon taking place on Sunday 3rd September 2017, we hope your final preparations are going according to plan.

The race has ample free parking and free secure baggage storage and sufficient toilets.  The race is also chip timed, and there are pacers for 1hr 45mins, 2hrs or 2hrs 15mins for the half marathon.

At the start-finish area, we will have a bar and new food provider.  There will also be post-race physio on hand by to work those aching limbs.   We also have the brilliant drummers provided by Rich Rhythms

Pre-entered runners will need to collect their chip from race HQ between 7.30 and 9.15 on race day. Please check your number from the advanced entries list. There is plenty of on street parking near the school, but please be mindful of residents. The race will start at 9.30 so give yourself plenty of time to make the start which is a short walk over the road from the school.

We will be accepting on the day entries for Sunday’s races - please bring along a completed entry form and your £30 entry fee to race HQ at Palm Bay School, Cliftonville, CT9 3PP.

This year the race is supporting the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance because of the important work that it does for the community of each county - we will donate at least £1 from each entry to the charity.

Please note that in line with BARR recommendations, headphones must not be worn during the race. Marshalls will be taking race numbers and action may be taken.

Jodi Hanagan will once again be our official race photographer on the day. Photos will be available to view and purchase from her website shortly after the race.  As a bonus, included in your price of entry, is a free photo download so, please make sure you wear your number on the front of your vest.

We also want to say a very big thanks to our race sponsors for their continued support to ensure Thanet Roadrunners continues to bring you Kent’s only road marathon race – County Solicitors, Fujifilm, The Running Outlet, Thanet District Council, High5 sports nutrition, RAYNET, Margate Ambulance Corps, local scout groups and all the marshals en route.

Results will be available on their website ( shortly after the race.

All that’s left to say is have a great day!
