Four K&P members ran in the Elmbridge 10km on Sunday 20th July. The course was flat and was run mainly on  gravel along the towpath in cloudy, calm but humid conditions. I am pleased to announce that Molly Renfer was 3rd senior lady  37.34. This was her first 10km.  I finished a disappointing for me 47.26, David Greenfield 49.57,  and Mike Edwards first 10km 59.55.


Caroline Jeffcote, returning from injury ran in the National Lottery Anniversary run an finished roughly, Caroline quotes in 52.20 which she is pleased about.

Other commitments and injuries meant that there was a team of five women for the final SCVAC at Wimbledon Park Athletics track last Monday evening. However, with the team participating in several events we gallantly finished 2nd place on the night to Epsom and Ewell Harriers. Both Nicki Murphy & Susanne Dietrich (both multi-event athletes) covered five events each, plus the 4 x 200m relay. In fact Susanne agreed to compete at short notice having been injured all season.

K&P secure top half place in first division 1 season

Much in contrast to the weather forecast of thunderstorms and hail, the U13/U15 season ended with the hottest match day of the year. Certainly not the right conditions for any PB effort in the middle distance races, but many of our sprinters and field eventers made use of the warm weather to either equal or set new PB’s. Once again several athletes went well out of their comfort zone to fill events, like notably Ben Paton in the hurdles, Lucy Tunnacliffe in the 800m, and Zoe Shepherd in the 1200m. Our match started slowly, but we steadily climbed from 5th place to 3rd position, creeping up on 2nd placed Ashford & Thanet all the time. Despite some very good relay results the gap proved too much, but the team finished in very respectable 3rd place.

A completed team sheet with 100% attendance on the day helped the Kingston and Poly team secure a fantastic win over all the clubs!  The weather was breezy but fine for the day and athletes went out of their comfort zone to fill the much needed gaps to earn us big points.  Both our U13 and U15 team won their own age group and when the points were added together we were clear winners.   While watching the athletics on the day we could all sense a feeling that we were doing well despite no match scores were giving out!

K&P storm to 2nd place in U13/U15 YDL match

When the day started with two dropouts due to injury and illness, we could not have foreseen that it would end with our best team performance of the season. This time, however, we were able to send out a strong U15 boys’ team. We also had a number of strong newcomers bolstering the team, and last not least everyone was willing to fill any of the gaps. The first score updates showed Bracknell running away with it, but only very few points separated 2nd to 6th place.
