About Samphire Hoe 5k Summer Series - Race 4

This Summer evening series takes place in the unique setting of Samphire Hoe - a nationally important and protected landscape in the shadow of the iconic White Cliffs of Dover. Samphire Hoe is one of the few places that you can truly appreciate the drama of the White Cliffs. The series comprises four fast and flat 5km races, which suit runners of all standards including beginners.
There will be a memento and finish line goodies for all finishers, plus prizes will be awarded to the leading runners and age category winners. You can enter a single race in the series or save money by purchasing a series ticket for all four races, or a three race season ticket. The races all feature chip timing.
 The Course

This one lap course uses the concrete pathways and unmade tracks on the Hoe and carries a statement of measurement confirming the distance. However, because the tracks are unmade, the race is officially classified as multi terrain.

First Aid
St John Ambulance will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance.

Race Location: Samphire Hoe, A20, Dover, Kent CT17 9FL
Please note that this race is only accessible by road and there are no public transport options available. On site car parking is available.
