Cross Country


Each winter Istead & Ifield Harriers compete in two cross-country leagues – Kent Fitness and Kent League, both consisting of a series of events between October and February.

A total of 14 runners took part in the 4 Kent League races over the season.

The Kent Fitness League is much more popular with a total of 54 different runners taking part in the 7 races, averaging around 30 per race.  Istead & Ifield finished 9th overall out of 18 teams, with the women in 12th place and the men in 7th.

Once again, Istead & Ifield organised the Allhallows KFL event, where 32 runners and 30 volunteers from Istead helped to make it a tough but popular race over sand, shingle and of course mud!

Istead runners also took part in the KCCA Veterans Cross Country in Dartford (4 runners)  and The Southern Counties (4 runners)

Please note that if you want to take part in Cross Country, you will need to wear a club vest.
