Welcome to the website of the Whitstable 10K Road Race, a uniquely popular running race held on the north Kent coast each May.

The 2017 race will be held at 11am on the 1st May Bank Holiday Monday at The Waterfront Club.

The course starts from Tankerton Slopes and goes out to Hampton Pier at Herne Bay. The terrain is mainly flat, with the second half of the race being along the promenade by the beach huts, and the course should produce some fast running times.

Canterbury Harriers will be organising this race for the eighteenth year in 2017 and hope that it will be an enjoyable event for all.

Once again we are particularly grateful for the sponsorship of Bailey's Nissan, Canterbury. In addition, we also have the sponsorship of Crackin' Glass. We would also like to thank The Waterfront Club for letting us use their facilities as the race headquarters.

For the 2017 race we will again be having online registration. Online entries will be open from 2nd January 2017 and will close on 24th April 2017. In addition, numbers and timing chips will be given out on race day rather than sent through the post. We will email registered competitors with final instructions before race day.

Please note that the limit of race entries is 750 and is often reached well before the closing date for entries. There are strictly no entries on the day.

Results for the 2016 race (and previous years) are available on this site.

A pound from each entry goes to the Demelza House Hospice Care for Children charity.
