Tonbridge Half Marathon

I took part in this four years ago when it first started. Trained from being able to do the odd gentle jog to regular 8 miler training runs and then the event itself. Takes alot of effort and dedication to do it properly. But I'm nearly 15 stones. Hard to believe seeing me yes I know! If you need a summer fitness challenge, a goal to aim for this could be just the right timing. Give it a try it'll give you a new lease of life (if it doesn't kill you first that is!) Here's the circular I've just received promoting this year's Half marathon

Tonbridge Lions Club and Tonbridge Rotary Club are staging the 5th Tonbridge Half Marathon at the fantastic West Kent College. In addition to some of the best facilities of any half marathon in the country, a finishers medal and a goody bag, runners will also receive a technical t-shirt – all this and the price is UNCHANGED from last year – only £20 or £18 if you are an affiliated runner!! AMAZING!

The undulating course is on traffic-free lanes through beautiful countryside around Tonbridge and Leigh. Last year the event raised over £16,000 for the charities we supported and the runners themselves raised an estimated £50,000 in sponsorship for more than 45 of their own charities.

Good luck with your training.


I was thinking of going to the farmers market last weekend but I couldn't be bothered. Thought I might try that new Bakehouse at 124 High St. it sells artisan bread and does nice coffee and tea so I'm told. But you know what I couldn't be bothered. Its the Slade School summer fete next Saturday I think. Might go along if I can be bothered. Might go to browse a bookshop or two one lunch time but it's alot of effort to be bothered. There's that play on at the Oast Theatre, been meaning to go out to see more live entertainment, have a few laughs. Can I be bothered though? Was going to write a letter to the local paper because it annoys me seeing all those Kent Highways department signs in the High Street, you know the ones where they keep congratulating themselves for laying down new tarmac on the roads, so basically doing their jobs then. Might not bother though as I don't want to make a fuss.
