Sevenoaks Rotary Club 10k Run - 2017 and 2018

We would just like to repeat our thanks to all of the Club runners who took part in Sevenoaks Rotary Club 10k Run in Knole Park on 2nd April this year, write Richard Burke and Tim St.Clair-Pearce - and to let you know we have provisionally booked 8th April* next year for the 2018 event.

You will recall that our children's charity - Friends of Shelby Newstead (FoSN) - worked in partnership with Sevenoaks Rotary to generate awareness and funds for this and other charities.

FoSN arranged for a short video of the Run to be produced which is here.

You might even catch a glimpse of one of your Club runners!

We aim to raise as much as possible for our good causes in next year's Run and we would be very grateful if you would facilitate an invitation to your members.

We will be in regular touch with you in the months to come and will update you on developments such as when and how members can register for the event.

We are also planning to introduce a new competitive element to the Run which we believe will go down very well with your members.

For now, take a look at the video and bear us in mind for next year.

Kent GP 2017 - after 5 races

James Graham at Paddock Wood Half

Please see this Kent GP update, writes Dan Witt. The men's team are currently 4th out of 36!!

This is before the Harvel 5 results are added, but I don't think many teams will have scored well there as it was sold out so early. A great opportunity exists for us to maintain or even improve upon our current position over the next four races, starting with the Bexley 10k on Sunday 23rd July.

Can we please get as many Sevenoaks AC entries as possible? Here is a link to enter via Run Britain, which is the cheapest way to enter with no fees. Event details are here. Hope to see some or even all of you there!

Also of note are the men's individual standings with Andrew Milne and James Graham in 15th and 16th places respectively, Keith Dowson and John Stevens 2nd and 5th M50s, James Graham (pictured above at Paddock Wood) 1st M60 and Sally Shewell 3rd W55; so individually we are also putting in some really strong performances!
