Kent Coastal 10 Miler Opens

Alan Green 10

Kent club Thanet Road Runners has announced that entries are now open for the Alan Green Memorial 10 Mile Coastal Road Race. The popular pre-Christmas event takes place on 7 December along the Thanet coastline from Westgate Pavilion to Palm Bay and back.

This bracing run normally sees its 500 places sell out very quickly.  The race will be run under UK Athletics rules. The minimum age 16 on race day. Entry £15- £18 with £1 from each entry being donated to a local charity.

John Hunt, race director for the Alan Green Memorial 10 Mile Coastal Road Race said: “I would say to anyone thinking of entering the race that it’s a fantastic coastal route with some great views it’s also very flat so a good opportunity for personal best.”

He added: “This year’s charity is the Pilgrims Hospice in Margate. I chose this charity as it’s very close to my heart and have first-hand experience of the amazing work they do in the most difficult of times, the care and support they provide has helped so many families in Thanet. As our chosen charity they will receive at least £1 from every entry received so let’s make this race a sell-out!”
