Early Entries For Kent Marathon

action from Kent Coastal Marathon

Entries are already starting to trickle in for September's Kent Coastal marathon and half marathon, according to race organisers Thanet Road Runners. For the full distance, there are already 61 entrants and for the 13.1mile event, 44 have made the early commitment.

One of the most reasonably-priced marathons in the UK, the picturesque event is £16 for attached runners, £18 for unattached and £20 for on-the-day entries. The same fees hold for the half marathon. The event takes place on Sunday, September 2.

The course begins at Cliftonville and covers Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Margate. The marathon race is undulating for the first half and flat for the second half. The marathon race incorporates the Kent Road Race Grand Prix, Kent Championships and Southern Counties Veterans Championships.
