    Chilham Castle Challenge Runs 2015

    Great Morning at Chilham

    For me an average runner/staggerer it is a challenging course, mud, hills and grass sections, having done it last year I was determined to try and better my time which I did, 6 minutes off 🙂

    Whether you try 5k, 10k or one of the Duathlon events they are all a challenge and enjoyable. 

    The event crew are the friendliest you could want encouraging everyone. 

    Will be be back next year  

    My son Dan Gooding knocked an incredible 26 minutes off his last years time, very proud of him.

    Thank you for the great race last Sunday - we really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back next year.
