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.
