Medway marathon routes

If you are looking for a big challenge, our resident running expert has devised 4 themed, marathon-length runs around Medway:

  • Medway Sports Centres Marathon – this route passes by each of our sports centres and finishes at The Strand in Gillingham
  • Medway Marathon Loop – this loop starts and finishes at Great Lines Heritage Park in Gillingham. It traces the outskirts of Medway, south of the River
  • Medway Peninsula Marathon – a loop taking you past the sites and spectacular estuary views to the north of the River Medway
  • Medway Marathon Point to Point – a point to point (P2P) route that starts at the furthest point in Grain, finishing at Splashes in Rainham.

Safety note: marathons should only be attempted by experienced runners capable of safely completing the 26.2 miles.
