Kent 50 Mile Endurance Run
This event is the successor to the Challenge Hub’s Kent 50 Challenge event run for many years by the ultra running legend that is Mike Inkster and to keep the spirit of that event alive we’ll also be holding several other Challenge events very much keeping with the ethos that Mike created about being inclusive, runner friendly and making events achievable for as many people as possible. This will be the 18th running of this event.
We’ve been very fortunate to have been granted permission to hold a the event out of Brooks Farm, Reculver Kent. The kind farmers there allow us to use their land and facilities to hold a running event and 98% of the route is on their land which does make for some lovely running! (And a huge barn makes a brilliant base camp!)
This event will be an 50 mile endurance run on 6.25 mile loops. With a 14 hour time limit this hopefully will be very achievable for a lot of runners.
Whilst the event is essentially a 50 mile run we want this to be as inclusive as possible and don’t like the concept of long DNFs so there will also be a Challenge element to the event as there has been in previous years. Basically if you want to “ring out” at the end of any lap then that is absolutely fine and you’ll be credited with your mileage in the results and receive a “Viking Challenge” medal, an official result and a goody bag. A minimum of four laps (plus an extra mini loop) would give you an official marathon finish, five an ultra, but you’ll need to finish all 50 miles to earn the new Kent 50 medal!
