This week saw more spectacular racing as Kent AC gathered once more at Beckenham Place Park
for what has been this year’s most consistently staged cross country fixture. HUGE thanks to Pete Lighting and Jonathan Tipper for organising these events over the last four weeks. While the series will be taking a break due to the new restrictions we look forward to the league continuing in months to come. Pete and Jonathan have done a great job with their incredibly fun to read race reports and you can read this and previous weeks reports here.
