The route of the North Downs Run passes through some of the finest scenery in Southern England. Starting at Cascades Leisure Centre, Thong Lane, Gravesend, Kent DA12 4LG runners thread their way across farmland to Shorne village before descending gently southwards through Cobham Park into the Cuxton Valley and the steep drop down to Lower Bush. Then begins the relentless climb to Holly Hill, followed by a welcome descent into Great Buckland.
The route crosses the fields to Luddesdown Court and over picturesque “Cricket Pitch Hill” (often with an incredible spread of poppies during May/June). There follows an 800 metre road section at Henley Street taking you past ‘The Cock’ pub.
Leaving Henley Street, the course passes through Kent apple and pear orchards to reach the historic village of Cobham.
Crossing Cobham High Street, into Jeskyns Nature Reserve & Ashenbank Wood and then through scenic Shorne Wood Country Park for a seriously challenging uphill section before emerging onto the Shorne Ifield Road and the path back across the fields to Cascades Leisure Centre for the FINISH.
The time limit of 4 Hours 30 Minutes will be strictly enforced this year.
We are always looking for marshalls and helpers for this race. If you are available, please email Istead_membership@hotmail.com
