KENT AC NEWS BULLETIN
2 May, 2021
It was a Kent AC sweep at the top of the podium at the Peckham Rye 10k this morning with Lee Haze (36.37) and Sarah Hanley (38.13) taking the wins. This was also a course record (and a PB!) for Sarah Hanley and a fantastic first race back for Lee after a few years of injuries.
Well done both!
On Wednesday night, Heather Castle ran 53:57 on the hilly Brixton Run Through Chase the Sun course, which placed her second in her age category. Yesterday, David Cowdry ran 1:59:44 at the Newbury Racecourse half marathon
Over on the track at the South London Athletics Network ‘Get the season Goin’ Track & Field Open Gift McLaren ran 17.44 for third in the 150m, and in the 3000m Will Pitt ran 9:55.43 and Paul McCrone 10:52.30.

He is opening up the opportunity for any members of the club who would like to join.
