The Kent Fitness League is an enjoyable cross-country series for non-elite athletes (sub-34 10K men and sub-38 10K women are barred). Races are staged across Kent from October to March and the league has currently 18 clubs competing. This website is hosted by Canterbury Harriers.
Final KFL Race to be Held at Swanley Park on 16th March
Following the cancellation of the race at Nurstead Court (see below) Swanley and District AC have kindly agreed to arrange this at very short notice instead of the planned relays. This fixture will enable us to sort out the final team and individual placings. The aim will be to present most of the awards afterwards at Five Wents Hall where refreshments will be provided.
KFL Race at Nurstead Court, Meopham Cancelled
Unfortunately the Kent Fitness League race at Meopham on Sunday 16th February has had to be cancelled due to the continuing heavy rain. Rob Bright, the league coordinator writes:
"The decision is taken with a heavy heart – this being one of our best venues – but remember it is primarily an Equestrian facility. The main reason is damage to paddocks caused by moving horses and also concerns about the lawns and pressures on parking. There would have been a chance that the course could have been revised to accommodate the horses, but there is more heavy rainfall forecast before the weekend and we would be taking a gamble on the conditions.
We are discussing whether we can reschedule our 7th race to another date/another venue, possibly on the date (16th March) earmarked for the relay competition. I will have more information on this early next week."
Important Notice for Guest Runners
Participation in this league is open to all 1st and 2nd claim members of the 18 constituent clubs – it is not an open competition. Owing to the league’s popularity and the limitations on facilities at many of the venues we regret that it may be necessary to bar other competitors from taking part in order to keep our numbers down.
Runners from other clubs or those not affiliated to a club should not automatically expect to turn up and take part. Those who wish to take part in a forthcoming race should register their intention in advance by email to robbright184 [at] gmail [dot] com (at least 3 days in advance) and await confirmation. An entry fee of £4 will be payable on the day for these runners and they will not qualify for any team or individual prizes. Failure to comply will mean no run.
