Targeted Events

As part of a drive to raise the profile of PWAC and attract further new members the distance running sub-committee are asking members to plan their training and where possible to  include  in their schedules a number of the events from the schedule below.

The events range from park runs (with the option of an after run coffee and chat), local road races, both the cross country leagues in which we compete and suggested races to include in spring marathon build-ups.

The object being to bring club members together, get full get full teams out where possible and promote car sharing.

All park runs are free but do remember your barcode so you are included on the club results.

All cross countries are free but remember you must be affiliated and have been registered by John Tilston to race for all the Kent League races including the Vets Championships. No registration is required for the Sunday Kent Fitness League races you can turn up at the venue on the day these races all start at 11am.

Any queries please ask your coaches or distance running committee members.

KXCL 2019-20

Our first cross country event is rapidly approaching – Sat 12th Oct.  The venue has been confirmed as Swanley Park in Swanley (every age category is competing).  Please can you let me know by the 25th September if you are intending to take part in this season.  All entries need to be processed in advance of race day, there are no entries on the day and all competitors must be EA affiliated.  It would be a great pleasure to have you on board.

The distances remain the same.  Men approx 10k, women 5k.

The dates for the remaining events are:

If you wish to take part, please reply to john161@live.com or text 07887 297858 with a simple yes or no by Wed 25th Sept and make a note of all the dates above.  I really hope you can make it and we can put out a good volume of club members creating a great team spirit.
