Race Description

Tonbridge Lions Club and Tonbridge Rotary Club are once again using the fantastic facilities in West Kent College to stage the 5th Tonbridge Half Marathon. The undulating course is on traffic-free lanes through beautiful countryside around Tonbridge and Leigh. Finishers receive a medal, tech t-shirt and goody bag. Check the feedback page on our website if you want to see just how good this event is!!!

“This is the best half I’ve ever done, and I’m not just saying that because I got a pb! There was ample parking at the easily accessible event village, and the facilities were great (proper toilets!). Good organisation at the start and some stands to keep you occupied while waiting for it to start. The race itself was “undulating” which I found really suited me, to my surprise. only once or twice did the hills get steep and even then they were short and sharp – you could make up on the gentle downhills what you lost on the ups. Running through Leigh village was a delight, the residents turned out in droves handing out oranges and cups of water, which was much appreciated given the hot weather. It was the extra touches like this that really made it worth it, as well as the water stop just one mile from the finish when I am always so sick of sports drink and absolutely gasping for plain water. I’d definitely do this again and recommend it to everyone.” Katie 2014
