Sunday 2nd August
Smugglers 10k run
Possibly the only race started in Kent with a cannon firing. Live music, muskets and real pirates!
The 10k route follows the seafront from Minnis Bay to Reculver, infamous for its smuggling in days gone by. Every finisher will also get a special medal commissioned for the event.
This is a flat 10k route, making it suitable for both beginners and those chasing a quick time! We have a great Race HQ, at The Minnis Bar & Restaurant, with a terrace where spectators can watch the race with far reaching views out to sea.
There will be great music organised by Late and Live Music Sessions, race commentary and our usual fun and friendly atmosphere. Bring the whole family and enjoy this lovely coastal location.
As with all of our events we organise, we will be using the very latest chip timing. We will be providing a live feed onto our website for results - so cross the line and your result goes live!
There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male and Female
1st Male and Female VET40, 50 and 60 and a Team prize (three to score).
