On Bank Holiday Monday 27th August I found myself adjudicating and therefore running the Canterbury Half Marathon.
For some reason I could not remember which course this was but on arriving and looking at the paperwork and the course plan I realised it was the half which ran out on the lanes to Petham and Waltham goes over the Pilgrims Way (Chartham Downs Road) dropping down and up to Petham where the course does a loop out round to Waltham before returning to Petham. Then at 10 / 11 miles it goes up, up over the Pilgrims way again. Once over this hill it is then a more or less cruise downhill for the last two miles to an uphill finish. It is a lovely run but certainly not flat and one of those courses where you seem to be mostly running uphill.
