30th Maidstone Half Marathon

Maidstone Harriers are pleased to announce that the Maidstone Marathon and Half Marathon will return once again in 2017. After it’s successful revival in 2016, the popular accurately measured route returns again to the Kent race calendar with a rural course taking in the challenging lanes in and around the villages of Boughton Monchelsea, Loose and East Farleigh. This will be the 13th staging of the Maidstone Marathon and 30th Staging of the Half Marathon and the route uses a single loop for the half marathon with the marathon runners completing a second loop. We had great feedback after we introduced the new course in 2016. Runners loved the undulations of the hills and felt a huge sense of achievement at the finish. If you’re looking for a challenge in 2017 then this is it! One runner said ‘It was challenging in parts, but great organisation and awesome marshals who were so supportive and encouraging’. There’s a unique medal and race memento available for all finishers – plus prizes for leading runners and age category winners. On site you’ll find parking, changing and baggage store. We regret that this course is unsuitable for wheelchair and disabled athletes.
