Race Description

The course uses the concrete pathways and unmade tracks on the Hoe and carries a statement of measurement confirming the distance – but because the tracks are unmade the race is officially classified as multi terrain.

This popular Summer evening series returns for a third year to the unique setting of Samphire Hoe – a nationally important and protected landscape in the shadow of the iconic White Cliffs of Dover. Samphire Hoe is one of the few places that you can truly appreciate the drama of the White Cliffs. Great care has been taken to make the landscape at Samphire Hoe fit in this dramatic setting. The series comprises three fast 5K races with a special Finals Night featuring an end of series 5K plus a feature race for the fastest 20 runners from the first three races competing for a cash prize. The course should be fast, but would suit runners of all standards including beginners. Medal to all finishers.
