We take part in a number of cross-country activities throughout the year. On a Sunday morning we aim to have a club run on the first Sunday of the month from Hayes Common. Many of us run the High Elms 10k and the Harvel 5 in June. We also participate in the Kent Fitness League during the Winter, although not all races are this muddy!! Information and dates for the KFL are below and dates of other events will be provided in the following dates section.
Kent Fitness League Cross Country Races - occasional Sundays during the Winter Season 2017 - 2018
Bromley Veterans has taken part in this league for some years now. The off-road course is always an approximate 5 mile run around beautiful parts of the Kent countryside. All runs start at 11am on a Sunday. It’s a great way to spend Sunday morning, helping to improve your speed over this distance. It costs £2 to enter each race, which is a bargain – and you will be entered into a raffle for small prizes at the end of the race.
The first 8 men (which must include 1 M40+ and 2 M50+) and the first 4 women (to include 1 F35+ and 1 F45+) finishers in each club score points, depending on their position; all finishers contribute to their club’s position by helping to keep down the scores of runners from other clubs. As well as the overall club competition, there are prizes for the first 5 men and the first 3 women as well as individual winners in each age group at the end of the season. Car-sharing for these meetings can be arranged and is encouraged, as parking space is limited. (Please offer the driver a contribution to the petrol cost).
Here are the dates:
· 22nd October 17 Knole Park, Sevenoaks
· 12th November 17 Swanley Park
· 26th November 17 Oxleas Wood
. 07th January 18 Fowlmead, Deal
· 14th January 18 Minnis Bay, Birchington
· 28th January 18 Nursted Court, Meopham
· 04th February 18 Blean Woods, Canterbury
Contact Anne (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Roger (email@example.com) for more information or to register your interest. All members are encouraged to take part. There will be hot drinks and cakes afterwards!
