Stunning new 3-2-1 route along the White Cliffs of Dover
16 August 2013
A new 3-2-1 running route along the White Cliffs of Dover has been set up, allowing anyone to take in the stunning views across the English Channel as they walk, jog or run.
The stunning route has been installed at Samphire Hoe - new piece of land created by Eurotunnel during the construction of the Channel Tunnel. It lies at the foot of the famous Shakespeare Cliff, between Dover and Folkestone in Kent. Samphire Hoe is one of the few places where you can truly appreciate the drama of the White Cliffs.
3-2-1 is Run England's project which aims to provide a range of marked out running or jogging routes across the country that anyone can have a go at. It's a way of providing a meaningful challenge to help more people get running.
Owned by Eurotunnel and managed together with the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership (WCCP), the 3.5km route is a flat, circular route along the bottom terrace of the wide sea wall. The route is clearly marked and accessible to all users from walkers, joggers to runners as well as wheelchair users and pushchairs.
There is something for everyone who enjoys the outdoors and wildlife at this amazing location, from outstanding scenery, peace and quiet, walks and picnics, to wildflowers, birds and sea angling. There is a tea kiosk which is open every weekend of the year and most days from Easter to September. There is also large pay & display car park, plus toilet facilities, a disabled access toilet and a baby changing room.
