Kent Downs 50

Kent downs 50

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering dramatic views, vibrant communities, a rich historic heritage, and diverse wildlife and habitats – Kent is home to part of the North Downs Way National Trail and other popular walking routes. A beautiful location to walk, jog or run - a route with real variety and some fabulous views.

About the challenge:

A basecamp near Maidstone, the main 50km looped route heads anticlockwise around the Kent Downs – starting on the North Downs Way to Blue Bell Hill, around picturesque Aylesford, and following the River Medway to Mote Park at halfway for a picnic. Along the Len Valley Walk to the majestic Leeds Castle, then the North Downs Way back to the showground finish line and celebration.

Choose to walk, jog or run and select from the full challenge, half challenge, or a 10km route!
