Course information

The Royal Tunbridge Wells 5k course is a 2.5km double lap route. Starting by the lake which is a short distance from the café, the course will direct you around the grounds of the park. The course is a mixture of terrain, beautiful lake views. With an all-round great atmosphere, you are sure to have a great experience.

There will not be any water refill stations along the course so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up. A ScottishPower water refill station will be available to use at the finish.

Please arrive 30 to 45 mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Our courses have been measured with a measuring wheel. This is the most accurate measurement method and may not always correspond with digital tracking apps and watches.

Meeting point

The start line will be located alongside the lake, between the cafe and the boat hire building.
