Únete Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon
Famed for the scenic and challenging route (the 300 foot ascent of Spring Hill at Fordcombe is to be mentioned), meticulous organisation, value for money and 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 a running club and Tunbridge Wells Harriers are very proud to have hosted the event for over 30 years.
Over the last 5 years the race has also donated over £120,000 to charity and some worthy local causes directly from race surplus. We are hugely grateful to all of our sponsors and partners particularly this year to Nuffield Health our sponsor for the event. Our race is organised by volunteers from Tunbridge Wells Harriers. We donate all our surplus to charity.
