There are a number of club races held each year, with the Club Road Championship and the Club Cross Country Championship sorting out the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. To keep the legs ticking over on those long summer evenings, the Summer 10K Handicap Series is always a favourite, with the winner being awarded the much sought after Speldhurst trophy. Throughout the year, results of all Kent Grand Prix events are collated to award an age and gender graded Club Grand Prix Champion.

But it’s not all about competing, with many social runs and social events held throughout the year. The annual club dinner gives the chance to see your fellow Harriers scrubbed up and a chance to acknowledge the achievements of the year. There are a number of hash runs, on Ashdown forest and further afield. Summer BBQs, winter fish and chips and curry nights all make sure that it’s not all work and no play.
