An exciting new event, the Kent Downs 50 rounds off a season of ultra challenges. With a basecamp near Maidstone, the 50km route heads anti-clockwise around the Kent Downs, taking in Blue Bell Hill, Aylesford and at the half way point, Mote Park. The route then goes along the Len Valley towards Leeds Castle and back to basecamp. You can choose from the full 50km loops, a 25km half challenge or a 10km Maidstone Loop.
