This race is the final one of the three that Kent will use to select a team for the Southern Inter-Counties at Oxford on 10th December. Check the Kent County Athletics Website ( for more information and explanation of the selection process. If you wish to be considered for Kent selection you should make every effort to race if you have not already gained automatic selection.



The course is our home course and is situated off Corkscrew Hill in West Wickham. There is limited car parking in the three small car parks which surround Sparrows Den, otherwise you can park in the surrounding streets.



The next fixture is the London Youth Games at Parliament Hill on Saturday 19thNovember when athletes represent their borough. Teams have been picked by the boroughs and whilst most club athletes represent Bromley Borough, there are club athletes in at least six other Borough teams as well. The Bromley team manager is Jay Galley to whom any queries should be addressed.

The next club fixture is the fourth Kent League at Danson Park, Bexleyheath on Saturday 26thNovember. This is the final fixture for all age-groups except seniors.

Anyone having any queries please contact me.
