The race is one of the most popular in the South of England attracting up to 2500 entrants and usually sells out well before the event.
Famed for the scenic and challenging route (the 300 foot ascent of Spring Hill at Fordcombe is to be mentioned), meticulous organisation by volunteers from Tunbridge Wells Harrier’s, value for money (quality medal and free technical T Shirt for all runners) friendly marshals, it was voted the 'Most Improved Race in the UK' in 2009 and was voted the No.2 Half Marathon in the UK in 2011 by Runner's World readers.
It is one of the biggest events in the UK organised by runners for runners and Tunbridge Wells Harriers are very proud to be hosting the event for the 35th year.
