These results are the best by the Club and mark the end of a great season.
John Witton was 20th and fifth M40 and Lionel Stielow was fifth M70 as just six Sevenoaks AC runners completed the Larkfield 10k in hot sunny conditions on Sunday 15th September.
The race was the Kent short-course road championship and there was a big turnout from the leading clubs. It was also the penultimate race of the Kent GP series with just the Maidstone Half to go (on 13th October).
