Race Description:

Betteshanger Country Park, near Deal in East Kent hosts it's annual Christmas marathon.  It has a two mile tarmac cycle track, with leisure paths for cycling and walking through established woodlands, wetlands and reed beds full of unusual wildlife and a wide gently undulating (more of a slope) trail around the edge.  The course is traffic free and ideal for a gentle trail run.

The race isn't totally flat but more 'sloping undulations' with some lovely woods to run through, grasslands, wetlands and ponds. 
If its wet it might be a little muddy but the trails are high quality and drain well.

Course Information

Depending on the weather on the day there is either a 4.37 mile loop or a 5.25 mile loop making it 6 or 5 for the marathon distance.  Both versions are based on this route. (The 5.25 mile version has a simple out and back add on towards the entrance on a wide tarmac pavement).

The route is suitable for both road and trail shoes.
