We are dedicated to the encouragement and promotion of endurance and recreational running for all members of the local communities in North West Kent and South East London.
A brief history of the Network
There are 8 clubs within the Kent London Athletics Network as of 2021 :-
The Kent London Athletics Network was formed in 2010 with four clubs involved in track & field athletics and endurance running with financial assistance initially from England Athletics sponsorship, then becoming five clubs in 2011, and staying that way until 2015.
Income was withdrawn in 2015 when EA sponsorship ended and three clubs left the Network, with two remaining, but has since been built back up to eight with three new clubs and a return of the three which had left in 2015 and with a new emphasis on recreational and endurance running.
The Network’s aim is to put on a programme of annual visits by top quality endurance coaches and prominent athletes or organisers of running events.
Over recent years, we have hosted coaching sessions with talks by GB and EA lead marathon coach Nick Anderson, ultra-runner extraordinaire Susie Chan, parkrun founder Paul Sinton-Hewitt and 2hr 23mins UK marathoner Mara Yamauchi.
Additionally and in order to fund its projects, the Network organises an annual summer race, the Bromley Midsummer Evening 10k around the fields of Bromley Common including an outgoing and an incoming lap of Norman Park - it's flat and it's fast and it's furious!
Held on a Wednesday evening nearest to Midsummer Day, it's one lap only starting in Norman Park and running through Bromley Common and back, all on grass and trails.
