NEXT YEAR WILL MARK THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE NORTH DOWNS RUN!
SAVE THE DATE – 30TH JUNE 2024
Each year a ‘mob match’ is held between Istead & Ifield Harriers, Gravesend Roadrunners and Larkfield AC. This year’s event, hosted by Gravesend Road Runners, took place on 11th July.
Nearly 100 runners from the 3 clubs took part in a 5 mile run from Nurstead Court, with points awarded in age categories up to age 70 (although the oldest competitor was 80 years old!). This year, Istead & Ifield excelled in both quality and quantity, with 6 runners in the first 10 and the greatest number of competitors. Not surprisingly they were the outright winners but other clubs had some noteworthy results, with Gravesend’s Annabelle Stearns taking 5th place overall and Larkfield’s Nicola Susans bagging the 8th spot.
A very enjoyable evening was topped off with drinks and a buffet supper kindly supplied by Gravesend Road Runners.
The 2023/2024 Cross Country Season is fast approaching and once again Istead & Ifield Harriers will be competing in both the Kent Fitness League (KFL) and Kent League. As in 2023 Istead will again be responsible for organising the Allhallows event at the Haven Holiday Park.
Further details and provisional dates can be found on the cross country page.
