Remembrance Sunday run to The Airmen’s Grave

For the sixth year, we will be holding a special Sunday Run this weekend to the memorial known as the ‘Airman’s Grave’ on Ashdown Forest (see below for significance). The full 12 mile run (6 miles there and 6 miles back) will start from St Johns car park on Ashdown Forest at 9.10am – please come in good time to leave promptly so that we can arrive for the 2 minutes silence at 11am. This car park is a quarter mile walk from our proposed post-run venue, the Coopers Arms, where parking is severely limited. It is the next turning on the right after the Horder Centre in St John’s Rd if approaching from the Groombridge direction.

An alternative 6 mile run will start from Gill’s Lap car park at 10.10am – please wait for the long run group to arrive to guide you. All routes will be marked with flour as we go to help any latecomers on their way.

Kent XC League – Somerhill

This Saturday was the second meet in the Kent Cross Country League and the venue was Somerhill Schools. Another warm one was predicted – what? last season was so wet?  This forecast was great. A total of 32 Harriers (9 women, 23 men) making us the club with the most runners on the day  (personally I think the Rocky Road and Aztec Biscuits certainly helps!

This was no ordinary cross country event, this was to be a momentous occasion of the tents first outing!   Well you could definitely see us, stunning yellow setting off the club flag….brilliant!  Looking smart and making an impression watched by a few intrigued members of the public as it was put up by Ed and Andy…no problem!  Welcome to first timers Gary O’ Reilly and Saul Harris and also It was lovely to see a welcome return to the cross country squad from Sonia Barden, Jeanette White and Nikki White and also Colin Ricketts. Welcome back!
