We are proud to be the official charity partner of UK Cycling Events. Join #TeamARUK and support vital research while taking on the UKCE Kent Classic sportive.

The Kent Classic is part of UKCE Classic Series which has been designed with all riders in mind. There are three routes to choose from and nothing too technical.


Starting and finishing at Lingfield Park Racecourse. The routes initially take you down and along the county border of East Sussex and Kent, before navigating around Hever Castle.

All three routes showcase the High Weald areas of natural beauty for its rolling hills, diverse landscapes and wild untamed flora and fauna. The Long route makes its way to the most South-Easterly reaches of the Kent Downs as it loops up and around Sevenoaks before crossing over the Bough Beech reservoir and returning back to Lingfield.

Of course, you’ll be rewarded for all your efforts as you cross the finish line to receive a finishers medal and other goodies from UKCE partners at Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, OTE Sports and Days.
