How to Get There

click here for details on the course itself.

By Bus:
Jaycrest (1A Bayford Road, Sittingbourne, Kent ME10 3AD; tel: 01795 438400) operate buses on Sundays between Maidstone and Canterbury via Faversham that pass through Boughton, which is a village about 3km south of the Race HQ.

By Car (please note well the instructions for parking below):
From Canterbury/Dover:
Travelling on the A2 from Canterbury/Dover, take the turnoff for Boughton and Dunkirk. This takes you over the dual carriageway and you should turn left into "The Street" at Dunkirk. Continue onwards until you see a pub called "Woodman's Hall" on your left. Take the turning on the right, opposite the pub, and follow this road into Staplestreet. At the "Three Horseshoes" pub turn right into Church Hill Road. This road will take you into Hernhill. You will see signs for the car park as you approach Hernhill.
From London/Medway towns:
Travelling on the A2/M2, take the Canterbury exit at the roundabout at the end of the M2 (Brenley Corner). The turnoff into Boughton is then immediately on the left. Just into Boughton, turn left into Bull Lane and turn right at the end of that road into Staplestreet. Then turn first left just before the Three Horseshoes into Church Hill road, which will take you into Hernhill. You will see signs for the car park as you approach Hernhill.
From Whitstable & Thanet:
It is simplest to take the A299 (Thanet Way) to the Brenley Corner roundabout and then follow the instructions for London above.
From Ashford:
Take the A251 from Ashford to junction 6 of the M2 and then head in the direction of Canterbury and follow the instructions for London.

This will, thanks to Mr Sands Dawes, be at Mount Ephraim about 500m south of the Race HQ. This will be clearly marked and, from 9:30am, marshalled. Please avoid parking at the Red Lion pub and, especially, parking on the road.

By Train:
It is probably best to take the train to Faversham station (the nearest large station) and then cycle or take a taxi to the Race HQ. Please note, however, that the station is about 6km west of the Race HQ. Call 08457 48 49 50 for train information or see the National Rail website.
