Official Website


For the 12th year, runners get the chance to stretch their legs in the beautiful surroundings of Chilham Castle, with the Chilham Castle Challenge 5K and 10K.

Why not have a Sunday morning blast and then rest in the afternoon with the run events starting at 8am. 

Chilham Castle Challenge sees runners compete in a demanding 5K or 10K race on the grounds of a 17th-century manor house. The course includes challenging hills and off road track as well as more ambient aspects such as a 500-year-old avenue of trees plus views of sculptured gardens, horticulture, rare flowers, and Jacobean and Norman architecture. 


What you say

The run was tough but on a sunny autumn day was breathtaking! Hester Barsham-Rolfe


Brilliant thanks Guys, J Maybourn

Well organised event and I race in this every year. It is great fun but a tough course. Will go back for sure. Yiannis Christodulou


Great Morning at Chilham

For me an average runner/staggerer it is a challenging course, mud, hills and grass sections, having done it last year I was determined to try and better my time which I did, 6 minutes off :-)

Whether you try 5k, 10k or one of the Duathlon events they are all a challenge and enjoyable. 

The event crew are the friendliest you could want encouraging everyone. 

Will be be back next year  

My son Dan Gooding knocked an incredible 26 minutes off his last years time, very proud of him.
