KENT AC NEWS BULLETIN
13 June 2021
SAL – RUNNERS AND OFFICIALS NEEDED
For those of you not familiar with the Southern Athletics League (SAL), it is a track and field league which runs throughout the spring/summer. RUNNERS OF ALL ABILITIES ARE WELCOME AND THERE IS NO MINIMUM STANDARD.
The first meet is next weekend (starting at noon) and we are still looking for both runners and officials to be part of the day. The league is a great opportunity to race in a track meet, have fun and push yourself, as well as an opportunity to get to know members of the club better over the course of the afternoon!
Electronic timing will be in operation. The timetable is available here.
Please add yourself to the spreadsheet if would like to compete and Ian Elwood and Vic Buck will be in touch with more information later in the week. Please feel free to email Ian with any questions. Spectators are allowed and the cafe will be open, face coverings will be required indoors. A small car park is on site but charges are £1 per hour.
We are also not getting any more of our K and KK numbers. If anyone has any from previous years then please bring them along.
QUALIFIED OFFICIALS NEEDED!!
We are really short on qualified officials and Kent AC needs to cover both the high jump and javelin events. If you can help with this can you please contact Ian. We currently have a few unqualified volunteers to help out but anyone else is very welcome. Officials will be required from 11.30.
ALEX YEE RUNS TO WORLD TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES VICTORY IN LEEDS
While Olympic selection is still to be confirmed it seems that Alex has more than demonstrated why he should be picked for the Olympic team with consistently solid performances and this recent win. We believe there is one more selection meeting before the final team will be selected in a few weeks. On behalf of all Kent AC members: Good luck Alex!!

Kent AC Summer Racing Calendar
Another reminder to plan your summer of racing here (once you sign up for SAL of course!) Everyone in the club can add races they come across to the list and we encourage you to do so. You can also find the doc here
After what might have been the busiest ever Tuesday night training session, Club President Alan Curtis has this to say: “On Tuesday the track was buzzing with perhaps 150 – 200 people there, creating a great atmosphere. Following the taster day over 40 new juniors came along, many accompanied by parents.
“Track etiquette was adhered to and people remain disciplined in just attending their own session. Thanks to all members and especially the coaching team.”
A polite reminder to remember to buy your track pass before you attend one of the track sessions.
We are always looking for more gate volunteers to share the load. Shifts are now 5:35pm – 6:50pm and 6:30 – 7:45pm. Please contact Heather if you’re free to volunteer and to find out which slots are available.
