Reculver Marathon

Date & Location

Birchington, Kent

Organiser’s Description

This route is slightly more adventurous than the Viking Coastal Marathon route - it will feature steps, a tiny bit of navigation (but you're never more than about 50 yards from the sea so can't get that lost no matter what!) and a couple of gentle hills. Two short loops of 3.94 miles along the sea wall towards Epple Bay, then two loops along the coastal path towards the ruins of St Mary's Church and the Roman Fort at Reculver, around it, then a couple of hills to the turn around with lovely views of the area as you come back down the slope, past the ruins on the 9.18 mile loop you'll do twice.
