TWH May Month Ahead


Please find below details of races and club activities coming up in May, including the highlight of our social calendar, the Club Party and Awards Night on the 13th – grab your tickets before it’s too late.

For those newer members, or if you’ve not participated before, here are some brief details of some of the club activities….all welcome, so please try and get along….plus there are three Kent Grand Prix races coming up soon and it would be great to have big Harrier turnouts.

Bluebell Run, this coming Bank Holiday Monday (1st)
An annual trail run from Groombridge through the lovely, local bluebell woods, with lots of stops, re-grouping and photo opportunities (see email from Nicola Morris last Monday for details)

Coronation Day (6th) trip to Kingdom Parkrun, near Penshurst
It seems an appropriate day for some local Parkrun tourism, which we’re doing jointly with our friends from TW Tri Club. Great post run coffee and breakfast options on site and a chance to meet up with your club mates.

First race in the annual Club Handicap (10th)
The first of four monthly races over a 10km route, with a chance of winning the Speldhurst Trophy. Our resident handicapper, David French, aims to get everyone back to the cricket pitch finish line together! An evening for some post race socialising at the clubhouse too (see email from David French last Monday, so please give him your predicted time)

Mark Taylors Birthday Hash (31st)
A club tradition, following a flour trail through the local countryside, starting and finishing from a local hostelry. Stops and stiles should keep everyone in groups and there is food and drink provided at the end, plus it’s an 0 birthday for Mark, that we need to celebrate (details of location and route to follow)
