TWH run – Wednesday 17th January 2024 – Canterbury Tales

Club Events
Greetings Harriers, 
With Christmas and New Year festivities well and truly behind us, we now turn our attention towards continued Kent Grand Prix domination. We once again set off to Canterbury this Sunday in our bid to retain both the Men’s and Women’s trophies.
Canterbury is a delightful place and like our friends in TAC/Tonbridge they have a river, a castle and a Waitrose grrrrrrr
and the delights and tales from Canterbury are many …….
And the Harriers will have a fair wind behind them

Prepare for your racing this weekend with a run, long or short, this Wednesday with some of Kent’s finest and most charming athletes.
This week’s run is a repeat of one that I set for us all the way back in 2014.
So, with myself as this week’s Routemaster 🚌, fasten your seat belts and lets go ……this week’s run is a repeat of one we that we have all thoroughly enjoyed in the past, incorporating the delights of Ramslye & Rusthall as well some more traditional parts of Tunbridge Wells.
The full route is 7.3 miles with a shorter route of 5.2 miles – something for everyone.
This week’s route is mostly well lit but please try and stay in groups as much as possible, looking out especially for guests, newer members and wear something bright with a head torch an optional accessory (especially on Langton Rd).
Map and GPX attached.
There is also a walking group that sets off at the same time. So if you’re injured, tired or just bloody famous, come along and walk with friends.

Current forecast for Wednesday is for a dry and very chilly -1C – wrap up !
The Nevill is closed for repair for several months, so we will continue to utilise the fine facilities of the Nevill Tennis Club next door to us for baggage and post run showers followed by our post-run refreshment. Turnout has been great and we want to keep that going.
So after the run head back to the tennis club – the perfect temporary home for the top seeds of Kent running.
The ideal place to relax and chill.
