We would like to extend our thanks to the following people and organisations, without whom the race could not take place:

Broadstairs Pavilion (Thorley Taverns)

Sweatshop Maidstone

Thanet Constabulary - for their help and guidance

RAYNETfor their excellence and communications experience

The Margate Ambulance Service - without whose help we could not stage this event

The myriad of helpers and marshals - who all give up their time voluntarily to ensure all goes smoothly. Please be nice to them out on the route – without them, you would not have a race.

We will again be supporting a local charity – at least £1 from each entry will be donated to the Broadstairs Surf Life Saving Club, which encourages water safety awareness and Lifesaving skills to the people of Thanet and the community within. The club is part of Surf Life Saving GB, with more than 6,000 volunteers helping to make our beaches a safer and more enjoyable place for everyone.
