The Kingston Canter Half Marathon, 10k & 5k

NEW for 2019

The Kingston Canter Cross Country run

Entries open Friday March 1st at 19:00 – this race is limited to 800 runners and we expect it to sell out quickly so save the date and make sure you have fingers at the ready for opening.

The Kingston Canter Cross Country run, in partnership with Kingston Maurwood is about having fun, being social and exploring the outdoors.

This brand new, totally traffic-free race is contained within the grounds of Kingston Maurward College.

The scenic route takes you on mixed terrain, but mostly on grass, paths and trails and follows a picturesque path around the lake.

Whether you’re an experienced off-roader, first-time runner looking for an adventure or even if you’d rather walk than run, then you’re more than welcome, you’ll be able to choose either our 1 loop 5k, 2 loops 10k or the 4 loop Half Marathon route.

Dressing up (if thats your thing) having fun and giving it your best shot is a must for this event.

The minimum age for the event will be 15

At the finish all runners will be welcomed in to the athlete village where there will be a tea/coffee bar, cake and homemade flapjack, other refreshments can be purchased too along with hot food provided by Kingston Maurwood catering

If you are thinking of entering this race why not book our other race the night before too? Our Kingston by Night run (Link Here) on Saturday night is a 5k or 10k night race around the same course

You can also book to sleep over in your camper van if you are doing the double – you can book this here too. Space for overnight stay is limited to 50 Vans.

The link for booking the overnight stay will work from 1st March.

All finishers will be rewarded with a bespoke medal and buff to celebrate your achievements.

The Kingston Canter Cross Country run will be well signed, have a friendly atmosphere, be chip timed, have awesome marshals and be loads of fun.

Plenty of free parking.
