Ist race report of the year me thinks.
On a very overcast rain filled day a few people who presumably didn’t celebrate too hard on new years even ventured to this well organised but hilly choice of a 5k or 10k road race.
Running together for the first lap the 5k runners peeled off to finish as the 10k ers faced the hills again.
The route starts from the village hall back towards Tunbridge wells up a hill with a nasty kick at the end a sharp turn right and back past the start , up the hill of the old A21 road and into the grounds of Scotney castle for small loop and back the way you came .
