Come and explore a varied landscape of ancient towns, gentle hills and unspoilt shingle beaches - and raise money for the East Kent Hospitals Charity. With two great routes to choose between, there's something for everyone!
Choose one of two circular, on road, routes of approx 35 or 60 miles, starting in Ashford and taking you over gentle wooded hills through unspoilt countryside to where the Garden of England meets the Sea! Heading back in time across Romney Marsh, the routes split at Newchurch. The shorter route then follows quiet country lanes through pretty villages, while the longer route heads on to meet the coast at St. Mary’s Bay and through the open landscape of the Denge and Walland marshes to the ancient ‘smuggler’s capital’ of Rye, before bringing you back across the Isle of Oxney through Tenterden to meet the short route and finish at North Park in the heart of Ashford.
