In June 2014, a team from the University of Kent Athletics and Cross Country Club will run 200 miles from the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus to the University’s Paris campus. Twelve runners will set off on 13 June 2014 and run over 26 miles a day for 8 consecutive days – the equivalent of over 8 marathons! In addition to raising awareness of the University’s 50th year and showcasing the opportunities available to students upon joining a University of Kent sports team, they also want to raise £10,000 for the Kent based charity, Pilgrims Hospice.
