The walk to registration
As runners carefully head towards the start in deep contemplation onlookers gaze down reflecting on their past races.
Stretch Chat View the opposition
A last minute warm up along the beach front
As one stretches...
...one relaxes taking in the view
John, a member of the Maidstone Harriers arrives at the race.
SEaside. Wind. Warmup.
A spectator capturing the start.
The start takes you past some of the smaller sail boats.
The leader, Tom Collins who is a formidable force in Kent races accelerates past the â€œTalk of the Townâ€? which he was.
Kids cheer on their dad
Ancient Greece or traditional English seaside town?
As the vetran reaches 5km...
...one of the leaders reaches 8km
A lady looks on waiting for the race to pace by. She was supposed to be competing but got the start time wrong and missed it.
At the finish she takes a place away from the line and crowds and quietly observes what might have been. Was this her first race that she has been training months for or is she a vetran who will be more annoyed with herself than sad.
The vetran is almost at the finish line
One of the last competitors heads towards the finish.
John is a true inspiration. Approaching his 80â€™s he is a regular competitor at running and triathlon events in Kent.
He may just have raced, but still pushes the buggy up the steep hill towards his car.
