Summer Handicap Series

Our Summer Handicap series consisted of a monthly race for members around Swanley Park. The start time of each runner is calculated according to their recent best time for the circuit, so that everyone converges on the finish line at the same time, whatever their running speed. It gets challenging for the timekeeper!

Winter Handicap Series - see Forthcoming member events.

Grand Prix Events

Roughly once a month we have a Grand Prix event where members can accumulate points towards a trophy to be presented at the AGM. Events so far have included:

Chatham Maritime 10K, Bedgebury Forest 5 mile, Swanley Parkrun, Joydens Wood 5K, Mount Ephraim 10K, & Larkfield 10K.

Regular Training Runs

Sunday mornings have seen members meeting up for longer runs - their start time & distance planned for whichever event they were training for - our coaches frequently prepare individual training plans for members preparing for longer events. Others can't manage the weekly coached training sessions on a Wednesday, and arrange to meet others on a different day of the week. The London Marathon always has at least one member entered and looking for training partners.  

4th April 2022 - Although this section of the site has been quiet for a while, events have still been taking place. 

The organisation for the Darent Valley 10K has been going well, and we look forward to seeing regular and new entrants this year. More information in our 'Events Section'.

For our club members, we have a new section listing the events such as our Grand Prix events.

Our regular coached training sessions, suitable for all abilities, take place every Wednesday evening, now starting at 7:00pm from the clubhouse in Swanley Park behind the cafe.

Sunday morning sees our members going for steady runs, starting at 9:00am from the clubhouse, and finishing between 10:00 and 10:30am with tea, and often toast!

Several of our members are training for longer events, and have made arrangements to train with like minded members at other times.

We're looking forward to a busy year!
