The Mid Kent 5


11th July 2021 (9am)

Pre-race instructions are available here.

Entries on the day are available, we will be using a new contactless system which is detailed in the pre-race instructions above.  Please use this where possible.  If you are unable to use this method then please fill out an entry form and bring it with you.  We would prefer that you use the new app to speed up the registration process for all.

Great news, we are back for 2021 and really looking forward to seeing you all at the newly refurbished Staplehurst Cricket and Tennis Club! 

With lockdowns and restrictions looking to end before the summer, our current plans are to run the event as normal, with a massed start, but this will of course depend on any restrictions in place at the time.  If for any reason COVID restrictions are still in place, then we have a completely safe and socially distanced back-up plan, which will involve staggered arrival times and the race being run in a time trial format.  We also offer a full money-back guarantee, so if for any reason the event does not take place, you will have the option to either defer your entry until 2022 or receive a full refund.

So what are you waiting for?  Enter today!

The Course

The course winds its way through the quiet lanes of the beautiful Kent countryside and being predominantly flat, makes it a perfect choice for that potential 5 mile PB.  There will be a temporary road closure in place for the first mile, but please remain cautious for the remainder of the event as the roads are open to traffic.
