A20 Path and Downs Half Marathon on Sunday 15th November.

 (I am aware that other races were mentioned, including the Thanet 10, which may have been first choice had it not been the day immediately after the Vets X-Country Champs, which I understand is a big event for most of the leading protagonists in the Road Race GP competitions) 

I hope everyone has a good run at Sittingbourne this coming Sunday, Mark will be sending a sheet round with the updated scores, including Sittingbourne results, next week. 

The first half of the 2016 fixtures will be available shortly after Sittingbourne also.

Regards
Dave
