Betteshanger Marathon

Date & Location

nr Deal, Kent

Organiser’s Description

We thought that it would be good to have a marathon specifically aimed at those runners who are intimidated by bigger and quicker road marathons, for whatever reason. We want to see people achieve, to use this as a bridge to bigger and greater things, to stay in the game a bit longer, to do things that they thought that they never could, or could do no more. The reality is that some folk are a bit slower, a bit older, a bit less confident. This is their marathon. It's about as straightforward as it possibly can be. No marathon is easy, it's always 26 miles 385 yards, it's a long way. But this Marathon has an aid station every 2 miles, a line painted on the track to follow if you're worried about navigation, is pretty flat and has a near perfect wide tarmac surface.
