The Larkfield 10k is back for 2018 with a new date. This event, near Maidstone, has been a popular race for many years in the Kent running calendar.
This great event has joined our Sporting Events UK line-up for 2018 for the first time ever! We're working hard to bring you everything you have loved about this race over the years and keeping all the best bits - we'll be bringing our own special Sporting Events UK style and atmosphere to make it even better!
The course is considered to be fairly fast and is two laps. It's a great option for new runners and for those looking for a good 10K time.
For competitors and supporters the East Malling Research Centre is a great base to start and finish at or to watch your running buddies! There will be hot drinks, refreshments and entertainment available.
As with all of our events we organise, we will be using the very latest electronic chip/transponder timing. The event is fully licensed and certified with all results being submitted to runbritain rankings and the Power of 10.
We will be providing a live feed onto our website for results - so cross the line and your result goes live!
