Kent Grand Prix Update

Kent Grand Prix

Evening Harriers,

 

The results have been updated after Paddock Wood and it still looks like it will be a close contest this year. We knew Petts Wood were on a mission to challenge our titles but it is Tonbridge AC who lead the way in both the Mens and Womens tables. Will they be drawn to the likes of Chislehurst or other smaller events though? We sit third in both leagues with a reasonable gap opening up behind, so the focus turns the next event…

…The Folkstone 10 miler on Good Friday (29thMarch). This is a great event for anyone searching for a PB if the conditions are fair – flat, fast and a nice coastal run! Entries are still open so please enter if you can.
