2016 Kent Coyote Marathon

Entries are now closed for the 2016 Kent Coyote Marathon.

The brand-new Kent Coyote Marathon is the perfect companion to our hugely successful Kent Roadrunner Marathon. Taking place at the same multi-million pound Cyclopark venue in north-west Kent, on the same perfectly smooth 1.29mi private tarmac circuit - no traffic, no pedestrians, no dogs!  You can expect all the same Roadrunner awesomeness, but with an entirely new bespoke 2016-only huge Coyote finishers' medal.

The 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Roadrunner marathons sold out months ahead of race day, so do not delay your entry. Take advantage of our breath taking onsite facilities, free professional race photography, CLIF Bar nutrition... and the second half of a unique 2016-only two-part interlocking medal set (the Kent Roadrunner Marathon is the first half!).

The looped nature of the course makes it an ideal location for spectators (all are welcome!) as well as an easy event to judge your pacing to perfection.
