Kent Fitness League Cross Country 2016/2017
The Kent Fitness League is an enjoyable cross-country series for non-elite athletes (sub-34 10K men and sub-38 10K women are excluded from results). These are friendly and fun events for all, and races are staged across Kent during the winter months. The league currently has 18 clubs.
All races are 5-6 miles the entry fee is £2.00 each, payable to the Team Captain for the day. Races start at 11:00am. At some events, there is also a junior race. The cost to enter is £5:00 for the season. Races start at 11am -- Junior races start at 10:15am.
At every event there will be a nominated representative from PWR to meet and greet you on arrival. This will normally be one of the captains or another person with experience of how these events run…pun intended!.
The more runners we have the better. Every member of the club is welcome and encouraged to run in these types of events - whilst the first few finishers from every club represented receive scoring points, every runner makes a difference to the club score just by completing the course. It truly isn’t the winning, it is the taking part that really counts! Then there is the socialising afterwards which helps to make the real difference!
In 2016-17, we saw the best finish ever for Petts Wood Runners. In the overall team standings, we finished in second place, as did the men's team with the ladies' team finishing in 3rd.
If you wish to be included please add your name and date of birth to the Team Sheet via the button above, or send those details to Stephen Robson.
Don’t be shy, join us. Don’t worry about how to get to an event as there will always be other runners who are happy to car-share and/or travel with you on public transport! We also arrange coaches to some events which are popular and a little further away from Petts Wood. There is no designated 'coach-organiser' at the club as yet and we welcome any volunteers who are happy to do this. We look forward to seeing you at the KFL!
Fixtures for 2017-18 will appear here when they are confirmed later in the year.
