Ricki Savage Thanet 20 mile – final race day preparations

Here are the FINAL PRE-ENTRANTS for Sunday’s Ricki Savage Thanet 20 mile. We will be accepting on the day entries - please bring along a completed entry form and the £25 race entry fee before 8.45 to race HQ at Christ Church C of E Junior School, London Road, Ramsgate CT11 0ZZ. Entries must be 17 or over. Each runner completing the course will receive a great goody bag and a race memento! 

Competitors will need to collect their timing chip from race HQ between 7.30 and 9.00 on race day. Kent Championships entrants will need to collect their race identifier from the KCAA desk. There is plenty of on-street parking within a few minutes’ walk of the start area, but please do not park at the school – there will be portable toilets in the school car park as well as public loos near the start. The race will start at 9.30 a short walk from HQ.

At least £1 from each entry will be donated to the 1st St Lawrence Scout group. The late Ricki Savage was running in Dublin to raise money for the group - we are very pleased to offer them our support. Watch out for them at some of the water stations! There will be manned water stations at around 3, 5.5, 9, 13 and 17 miles, with water in 330ml bottles

Please note that for the safety of runners, headphones should not be worn during the race. Marshalls will be taking race numbers and action will be taken.

Jodi Hanagan will be our official race photographer on the day. You will be able to purchase prints or download your race photos directly from her website -– She'll be offering a special discount code for 10% off the cost of prints and digital files if you like her Facebook page - Race results will be available shortly after the race on

Very many thanks to our main race sponsor Oakwood Homes for helping to ensure the race can go ahead. We offer thanks to Thanet District Council, RAYNET, Margate Ambulance Services and all the marshals en route.

Currently looking to start dry, but watch out for that coastal breeze!
