This will be my first Marathon, but I'm keen to use this opportunity to help raise money for a cause that amazes and inspires me.

Living on the coast you often hear the stories of bravery from the amazing volunteers of the RNLI. 

I am new to running but since joining the Coastal Striders I have fallen in love with my new hobby. 

Event details


The Black Hugin Marathon will take place at the start of September at the Pegwell Bay Nature reserve. It will consist of loops of 3.28 miles that I will repeat until the Marathon distance is reached. 

To make it a little more interesting it will be running as the sunsets and darkness falls!!
