Kingston Athletics Club and Polytechnic Harriers

Welcome to Kingston AC and Polytechnic Harriers

We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.

Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB).
We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.

Lockdown - Is it nearly over?

We hope you are all safe and well and not too bored.

We assume some of you are super busy as key workers and others are still a little under-employed and wanting to get released back into the wild.

Clearly we all hope the pandemic and lockdown goes away soon.

Things won't feel normal until we have a track full of athletes enjoying their sport and that is likely to be a little while yet.  Some group training has started up again in local parks etc, now that the government has allowed groups of up to 6 to meet.  The first Momentum sessions were last week.  We'd love to hear from groups outside Momentum too, to hear how you are getting on.

In the meantime, here's a video from lockdown that Kira and I (Richard H) did a little while back to show that you can always find ways to adapt your training a bit - in our case for hurdles.

K&P Awards

Feels like a long time ago (sorry it’s late!), but we would just like to do a quick thank you to all the hard work and effort that went into organising the K&P AGM & Awards night back in February, in particular @lester.shoots for capturing the night. And, of course, congratulations to all the award winners for your dedication to the club and to your athletics career.

It was a successful night with a large turn-out, with lots of discussion about how the club will be moving forward in the coming months. Obviously, this has been put on halt a little bit and unfortunately our athletes cannot compete at the moment, but we are very eager to get back to it.

We are still hopeful and want to let you know we are working to get us back at the track as fast as possible, making it safe and easy to come back to normal life at the track. Please have patience and keep on training!

Here are some of our athletes in training during this lockdown period.

Hopefully lots more of you are still going strong as well.

Please send us any videos you can (just a few second clip would be great) and we'll compile it for a future video ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

We hope everyone is safe and healthy and keeping fit where they can.  The whole club is really looking forwards to us returning to the track as soon as it is safe to do so.
