What we Do

As a club we run weekly training sessions as well as social runs.  We also take part in a variety of events throughout the year, including internal competitions.



Training sessions take place every Wednesday, starting at 7am.  Sessions are led by one of our qualified coaches.  In Summer they take part in Swanley Park.  Winter sessions make use of a variety of locations in the local area.  Each session is tailored to meet the needs of individuals.  So, whether you are aiming to improve your parkrun time or training for half marathon or marathon, our training sessions can support you.

Kent Fitness League

SDAC  are members of the KFL.  This is a series of 7 cross country  races across Kent.  We are hosts to one of the first races of the season held in Swanley Park.  So whether its getting knee deep in mud at Minis Bay, running along the beach, or crossing paths with deer in Knole Park, the cross country season has something for everyone!
