Overview

A popular part of the Kent sporting calendar, the Canterbury Half Marathon returns again in 2019. Organised to support Pilgrims Hospices by Nice Work, the race attracts a large Bank Holiday Monday entry to confirm its position as one of Kent's favourite half marathons. The course is challenging and covers the quiet country lanes on the outskirts of the city. Bespoke medal plus range of finish line goodies available to all finishers. Also includes well stocked aid stations along the route. Our thanks, as always, to the Canterbury Forset of Blean Rotary Club for their invaluable help in staging this race. Also includes a 2 mile fun run and children's race.

I booked Canterbury Half last minute, as I wanted to get a race in the calendar for the August Bank Holiday. It's certainly not a flat course (there seemed to be more up sections than downs) but the views across the Kentish countryside were stunning, taking in the apple and p...Read full review

I was oo-ing and aah-ing about whether to take part in this race on the Bank Holiday Monday. It through my training schedule out of sync slightly and it was meant to be rather warm, but with only a couple of weeks until the New Forest Marathon, I thought it was a good idea to get...Read full review
