The Kent Coastal Half / Marathon are organised by Thanet RC. Both are well organised races that have recieved the prestigious BARR Gold Standard accreditation.
Both races have largely coastal routes on predominantly well tarmacked footpaths and promenades. Runners start with a loop around Palm Bay before following a largely coastal route through Broadstairs towards Ramsgate, heading back to complete the half marathon at Cliftonville.
Those running the marathon then continue through Margate, again largely along the coast, before turning at Minnis Bay and heading back to finish at Palm Bay School. Runners can expect several hills to keep things interesting!
