Canterbury Trails

July 16th

Canterbury Trails Web Banner

That route in large part followed the old Roman road of Watling Street and connected Southwark with Canterbury over some 67 miles (100 + KM) of distance.

The objective is to re-trace the steps of CHAUCER’S PILGRMS in one serving, weaving our way through LEAFY South London to Rochester Castle before heading onwards through tranquil lowland orchards and beside the North Downs, before terminating at THE MAGNIFICENT Canterbury Cathedral.

An oddity of the Pilgrimage of Yore was that the Pilgrims would complete the final 3 miles barefoot, as a penance. We intend to do likewise for the final mile…! This is an optional challenge for those who feel comfortable taking on this quirky finish!

You can expect this event to deliver all the qualities of RAT RACE’S established Ultra Runs: ICONIC start and finish venues, INCREDIBLY YUMMY Pit Stops, and devoted marshalling.

You can enter this challenge on your own or if you have a team of 2 you can both receive £20 discount on the solo price. The entry price increases as you get closer to the event, please see the website for details. https://ratracecanterburytrails.co.uk/pricing/

All we would ask is that participants promise to raise a minimum sponsorship of £200 for us.
