Kent Fitness League Cross Country Races - occasional Sundays during
the Winter Season
Kent Fitness League Cross-Country Meetings 2013/2014
Bromley Veterans has taken part in this league for some years now. The off-road course is always a 5 mile run
around beautiful parts of the Kent countryside. All runs start at 11am on a Sunday. It’s a great way to spend
Sunday morning, helping to improve your speed over this distance. It costs £2 to enter each race, which is a
bargain – and you will be entered into a raffle at the end of the race. If, for any reason a runner is entering
as a ‘guest’ (e.g. you have a friend visiting who is not a member of Bromley Vets), the entry fee is £4. This
fee increase has been introduced this season; guests are non-scoring.
The first 7 men and the first 3 women finishers in each club score points, depending on their position; all
finishers contribute to their club’s position by helping to keep down the scores of runners from other clubs.
As well as the overall club competition, there are prizes for the first 5 men and the first 3 women as well as
individual winners in each age group at the end of the season. Car-sharing for these meetings can be
