Dear all Kent affiliated clubs

There are three Dartford Harriers AC Open Competitions taking place this summer. They are always great events with electronic timing and measuring and all results will be posted on the Power Of 10.

I'd appreciate if you could share and publicise with your membership.

If you have any competitions or events of your own to advertise, please send a flyer and DHAC will be happy to do the same.

Kind Regards

Lingfield 10's - Sunday 30th June 2019

Dear Fellow Running Club
Each year we organise an event and we would be grateful if you could publicise the event within your club, either by adding to an up and coming newsletter, forwarding this e-mail to your members or just simply adding the event to your events calendar.
The Lingfield Running Club would like to invite you to take part in our 10 mile or 10k races on Sunday 30th June 2019.
Both races are over multi-terrain and through beautiful rural Surrey countryside. The 10k is hilly and challenging while the 10 mile has a few more hills and is slightly more challenging! However, you will be encouraged by our very friendly marshals from Lingfield running club. Numbers will be limited to a total of 300 across both races.
The race HQ will be based at Lingfield College RH7 6PN where refreshments will be available. Start time is 09:30. Entry in advance for affiliated members is only £10 or £15 respectively for the 10k and 10 mile races. This event is organised by runners for runners and so all profits go to charity which this year is St. Catherine’s Hospice. Details of how to enter, maps of the routes etc., can be found on our club website
We hope to see you at our race!
Chris Rance

South London Harriers Informal 10K Race Series 2019

I am writing to inform you and hopefully your members about our popular 3 race series of cross country 10K races, which are held annually on the last Thursday of May, June and July. This year the dates are:
30th May
27th June
25th July

I would be very grateful if you could inform your members in case any are interested in taking part. As the name suggests these are open and informal races held over the countryside at Farthing Downs and Happy Valley in Coulsdon (south of Croydon).

Our clubhouse is located close to 2 stations, Coulsdon Town & Coulsdon South, and has changing and shower facilities and a very reasonably priced bar for post-race refreshment - each runner will be entitled to their first drink at half price. The clubhouse is secure and someone will be on site whilst the race is happening.

Although there are no prizes per race, for those runners completing all three races there is the chance to win a prize for the fastest cumulative time, men and women plus team (any combination of 3 runners).

Each race costs £4, or there is the option to enter all 3 for £10. Entries on the day are accepted at no extra cost and I would suggest any interested runners should report to the clubhouse no later than 7 p.m. to register / collect numbers etc. before making their way to the start, which is approximately 10 - 15 minutes jog/walk away.

Once again apologies if this has been sent to you in error.

Best regards,
Steve Vincent

Chislehurst Half Marathon - Sunday 19th May 2019 at 9.30 am


I'm writing to let you know that the fourth running of this local annual half marathon is due to take place in May in case your club members are interested, particularly as we have had a good number enter this local event in previous years.


Based in Chislehurst, this half marathon is a circuit which includes the trails and open heathland of glorious Scadbury Park, with 50% of the total distance being offroad.


Race HQ is at Glebe Football Club in Foxbury Avenue off Perry Street in Chislehurst which offers catering, a licensed bar, onsite parking, baggage storage and proper loos, all in a safe environment. Apart from the usual podium trophies, there will be gold medals for the first 5 men and first 5 women to finish, silver for the next 20 men and 20 women finishers, and bronze for all other finishers.


The advance entry fee remains at £23 for affiliated runners, and online entries can be accessed via the Run Britain portal at


The beneficiary of all of the race proceeds is Orpington children's' charity the Maypole Project which supports families with children who have complex illnesses, for which £16,000 was raised from the event in its first three years. 


The race website is at and there is a Facebook page for keeping up to date as race day approaches.


With best wishes
