7 Bridget Davey 24.31
21 Kate Pratten 25.52
26 Carolyna Jones-Baldock 27.01 5th Team

As you can see we were a little sparse on numbers at the final Kent League, but still counted as a team.
On making her debut for the season Bridget ran well getting well in the top10. Our other two team members came in 21 and 26 respectively.

The Kent League hasnít been terribly well supported this year, which is disappointing as they are all local and all short distance. We have won the league in the past, often running over 8 women per race. We still didnít do too badly coming 5th Team for the whole season, but this has been done with the same few people turning up each time.
Well done to everyone who took part in this years League, hopefully weíll renew our efforts and see some more faces next year!!

I donít think I need say anything about the course over the weekend as most of us are still trying to clear up the mud!!

However it didnít seem to put off our team and we did very well coming in 7th overall. We were also first Kent team in! (and 22 places in front of Ranelagh!!)

The next big race, - apart from this weekends mob match, is the Nationals in 3 weeks.

See you all there.

Well done to everyone who turned up to race on Saturday. It was very cold! Just ask Jane, who I am pleased to say has thawed out and is not frozen to Detling showground. Our first lady home was Bryony, clear ahead of third place. Then in a good mob formation Jane, Sarah, Julie and Rosie. Congratulations to Sarah and Julie who both competed here for the first time, and hopefully not the last! Ė It wonít be that cold at the southerns!! Bringing the team home in 6th was Lisa, who is back after a lengthy injury. We came second to Medway in the 3 score, who with only 9 points were fairly unbeatable. We did however retain our trophy with gold in the 6 score, so medals-a-plenty for the senior women!

Our next big race is at Hillingdon, for the Southern Championships. Keep fit!!

The Blackheath and Bromley Senior Ladies team survived sub zero temperatures and hypothermia (thanks to kind assistance of the Kent Ambulance Team) at Detling Showground in Snowy Kent. The squad performed well in icy conditions to win the 6 to score team prize by a big margin.

Well done to all who turned out, shivered and ran this weekend.

The following photos & info from Mick Jones

In freezing conditions 13 of the clubs girls braved the elements to run the Kent Cross Country Championships. Amber Reed ran a controlled race to win the under 15s title, with the other girls having possibly their best runs of the season so far to bring the club home in the silver medal position. The under 17s despite being under strength also won silver medals led home by Jen Hamer. In the under 13s Janae Galley returned to form to finish in seventh position.

Full results are here...

These photos and write up by Frank Butler

Jen Hamer is the Kent League cross-country champion after finishing fifth in the last race of the Championships at Danson Park last Saturday, 6 December.

The Eynsford youngster capped a great 2008 by topping the league in all four races with two 3rd places, one 4th and Saturdayís place to win by two points. The 17 year old, in only her first full season of middle distance running went into the last race, not fully fit, but produced a gutsy and determined performance to clinch the title.

The Weald of Kent A level student, a member of the Kent athletics squad, had previously competed as an under 13, but the talented athlete then gained county selection for at netball and cricket. Having returned to athletics this year running mainly 3k races for Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC, Jen has continued to make improvements throughout the year and will now be working hard ready for the Kent Championships at Detling in January.

16/11/08 - Hellrunner at Longmoor Camp

A group of intrepid runners from the club took part in Hellrunner today. It was a 10 mile (ish) cross country race around (and up and down) an army training are called Longmoor Camp, in Hampshire. The course was very damp and sandy with few flat bits. The highlight was the "Bog of Doom", a stinky muddy puddle about 40yds long and about 5 feet deep in places!! This was followed up a combination of sand dunes, aptly named the "Hills of Hell".
