Kent Coast Run Vol. 2


ABOUT THE PROJECT: The Kent Coast Run 2023 is a continuation of a St Hugh’s College outreach project begun in Summer 2019. The St Hugh’s College Outreach Officer ran along the Kentish coast, stopping to give inspirational talks at local state schools to promote access to Higher Education. This was a 140km route, run over five days and we visited 13 schools, spoke to 656 pupils, and went through 22 towns and villages.

The 2023 edition is an even more ambitious endeavour, beginning on 24th April with talks in New Romney, and finishing in Canterbury on 28th April. The new route is longer and more challenging than the last, with more stops along the way. In addition, for some of the talks, the Outreach Officer will be joined by Student Ambassadors and St Hugh’s College academics. The on-the-ground support team will consist of our Admissions Coordinator and one of our IT Officers, who will also be very happy to answer questions about the College!

Here is the schedule with locations for the Coast Run week:

Day Location
Day 1 – Monday 24th April New Romney (early afternoon)
Day 2 – Tuesday 25th April Hythe (morning), then Folkestone (afternoon)
Day 3 – Wednesday 26th April Dover (morning), then Sandwich (afternoon)
