A NEW end of season Ultra Challenge®– in the ‘Garden of England’  – with a basecamp near Maidstone, with parking & weekend camping options.  The main 50km looped route heads anticlockwise around the Kent Downs – starting on the North Downs Way to Blue Bell Hill, around picturesque Aylesford, and following the River Medway to Mote Park at halfway for a picnic. Along the Len Valley Walk to the majestic Leeds Castle, then the North Downs Way back to the showground finish line and celebration. It’s easily accessible; you’ll get full support; and with 25km & 10km options also available,  there’s a Kent Downs Ultra Challenge® waiting for you!
