The North Downs Way will host a great new event in 2011. The feature element of the North Downs Way Challenge to be held on Sunday, March 6 is 20 miles in distance and Is for those looking for an arduous run or hike. Starting at Cobham Manor the 20 mile circular route takes you through Hollingborne, Harritesham and Lenham before climbing back up the North Downs to Ringlestone Hamlet.
There is also a 14.4 miles and a 8.4 miles option for those seeking a more modest challenge but whichever distance you choose, there are great opportunities to greet Spring in the lovely setting of the North Downs.
Event organiser the British Heart Foundation is asking: do you have a New Year resolution to get fit and healthy? Do you like saving the lives of others? Do you love hiking or running? Or do you simply love the outdoors? The charity reckons that If the answer is yes to any of those questions then they have the solution in the shape of the North Downs Way Challenge.
