The Sevenoaks 7 takes place on Monday 28th August, meeting at Sevenoaks Rugby Club on Plymouth Drive. It was first held in 1993 as a replacement for the Sevenoaks Half Marathon.
This moved the race from the busy Sevenoaks roads to the tranquility of Knole Park and quickly established the Sevenoaks 7 as one of the Country’s finest off-road races.
Although challenging, the race takes runners through some of the most beautiful countryside in England.
Tickets are £11 for affiliated clubs, £13 for others (£15 on the day) and £2 for the Junior 2.5K race. To enter go to www.7oaks-ac.org.uk and follow the links.
