KFL 2019/20 Match 1 - Knole Park

KFL Knole 2019

Sevenoaks AC's combined team won the first match of the Kent Fitness League cross country over a tough course in Knole Park. The event was superbly organised by Richard Thomas and his team from the club, and was blessed with fine conditions.

Despite having to field many more helpers and marshals for the Knole-Estates-mandated new course, SAC fielded a team of 43 runners on the day. The women's team did particularly well with Cath Linney, Vanessa Gilmartin, Mary Bridges and Suzy Claridge scoring in a clear victory ahead of Istead & Isfield and Paddock Wood.

The men's team were a solid fourth, led by James Mason in fifth place overall. James was backed up by fellow scorers Guillaume Nineven, Ben Bridges, Lee Lintern, Mike Lochead, Darius Sarshar, Andrew Milne and Andrew Mead. Dartford Harriers and Medway & Maidstone were a long way clear in the men's team race, with Paddock Wood just ahead of Sevenoaks. But the brilliant performance of Sevenoaks AC's women tipped the balance in SAC's favour in the combined category.
