The Weald of Kent 10 was organised by Maidstone Harriers and held near Biddenden in Kent on Sunday 26th June, 2011 First of all, here’s a film of the event, it’ll give you an idea of what to expect from the route.

To give a bit of background, in the couple of weeks prior to this event Britain had been suffering constant storms with loads of…

The Great South Run, 2013

by Cat Bednarski Considering this was my first 10 mile race I was quite anxious about this one, and of course it didn’t completely fill me with confidence that it fell on the eve of the biggest storm in over 20 years either! However, I made it across that finish line with a great big smile upon my winded face.

As the race started, it were as if by…
