What you'll do

We’ll set off on foot from The White Cliffs Hotel and follow the trails through the stunning North Downs countryside along wooded tracks to the picturesque village of Kingsdown before hitting the clifftop paths and following the coast to stunning St. Margaret’s Bay.
Then we’ll climb steadily up to the South Foreland Lighthouse before zigzagging down the cliff face path to Fan Bay. Then it’s up to the White Cliffs National Trust Visitor Centre for a well-earned cup of tea. After a refreshments stop we loop back to St. Margaret’s Bay for an optional dip in the sea ( weather permitting) before climbing back to The White Cliffs Hotel.
Here there’s an option to stop and have a bite to eat and a drink or even stay the night at an extra cost of course.

The route is approximately 10-12km with 300m elevation.

Where you'll be

The experience takes place in the Kent Downs a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You’ll have the opportunity to run along the coastline, get off the beaten track and let your imagination loose amongst the rolling green fields and cliffs of the North Downs. St. Margaret’s Bay is a secluded hidden cove, a perfect spot to see the White Cliffs of Dover from sea level.
