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 9 clubs within the Kent London Athletics Network as of June 2022 :-
The Kent London Athletics Network was formed in 2010 from several local clubs with financial assistance from England Athletics until 2015.
EA then withdrew its support but the Network started to fund itself through its annual 10k and has since extended membership to ten local clubs and with an 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, it has 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.
