Road Running Update

As mentioned by Dave Behagg last month, I (Richard Dunstan) have been invited to help with the KCAA road running duties and specifically the Kent Grand Prix. Please address any queries that you may have regarding it therefore to me at roadrunning@kcaa.org.uk 

The 8 Grand Prix events for 2022 are to be:-

March 13th - Paddock Wood Half
April 15th - Folkestone 10 miles
May 8th - Darent Valley 10k
June 5th - High Elms 10k
July 10th - The Sevenoaks 7
August 29th - Canterbury Half Marathon
September date TBA - Larkfield 10k
October 9th - Petts Wood 10k

Please check these dates before entering and do not rely exclusively on the information given above which might change between now and these race dates.

Clubs affiliated to KCAA will be entered into the Grand Prix team competitions automatically, as will the runners from these clubs in the individual competitions. Unaffiliated individual competitors need to contact roadrunning@kcaa.org.uk in order to enter, and must be Kent Qualified - see http://www.kcaa.org.uk/ExtractfromRulesforCompetition.pdf  for the eligibility rules.

Individual competitions, best 5 scores from 8 races. Team competitions, best 6 scores from 8 races (this is expected to revert to 6 from 10 for individuals and 8 from 10 for teams from 2023 onwards).

Mens' team competition, top 6 from each club score down to 100th place. Womens' team competition, top 4 from each club score down to 50th place

Individual Competition: Senior Men score down to 100th place. Senior Women to 50th place; M40 to 20th; M50 to 10th; M60 to 10th; M70 to 5th; F35 to 10th; F45 to 10th; F55 to 5th; F65 to 5th.

Runners who are not in the competition do not count in the places.

Age qualification for Kent Grand Prix categories is as follows: Individuals crossing an age threshold during the year will automatically enter the veteran competition for their age on the date of the first race they run. (or in the case of people becoming a M40 or F35, the first race they run as a veteran). Any competitor becoming M50, M60, M70, F45, F55 or F65 during the year and after the first race, who would rather enter the competition for their new category must inform the competition organiser at roadrunning@kcaa.org.uk and before their first scoring race after their birthday, and may only count this race and those afterwards. All competitors may compete in the senior category and only one vets category during the year.

Minimum age for senior competition is 17

So that's it. Let the competition begin.
