On Sunday, 31st October 1982, the Tunbridge Wells Runners (former name of the Harriers) held their first-ever internal club race along the old railway track we know today as Forest Way. On the day, 21 runners took part in a five and ten-mile race, which started at the Forest Way Country Park entrance just off the B2110 Withyham Road.
Those running the 10-mile race ran as far as Forest Row before turning to return to finish where they started. The winner back in 1982 was Chris Hughes finishing in 67mins.
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of this first-ever club race, we would like to repeat the event on Sunday, 30th October 2022, starting in the same place at 8:30 am!
If you would like to participate in the five or ten-mile race, please let us know by signing up via this Registration Form.
More details will be forthcoming soon about parking, but for now, it would be great to get an idea of the number of people who would like to participate, so please register.
If you have any questions, just let me know.
