About the Event

Great dressed up, embrace the theme - which Superhero will you be? If your not a fan of dressing up, then come as you are, you can still get involved and raise money for this fantastic charity. The 5k takes you along the promenade with wonderful coastline views of Margate. There will be lots of smiles, lots of laughter and loads of fun!

All of your entry fee (minus booking fees) will go directly to help to fund the Kent Assoication of the Blind's work.

There will be lots of activities at the Race HQ, including a family fun run, stalls and a mini-event village.

Be a fundraising superhero and get sponsored for taking part.  We recommend aiming for £100 as your target to represent 100 years of KAB.  Set up a donation page via www.justgiving.com/kab.  £100 could help pay for an Eye Clinic Liaison Officer to provide essential emotional and practical support within a hospital for a day.
