Teams are made up of four runners, on a 4km course which has been described as a “fast and furious undulating cross-country course”. Please see here for more information. To enter please contact Sarah Hanley.
There will also be a junior team entered. Please see the junior team section for more details!

WELCOME HOME, ALEX

ALEX YEE AT KENT AC
It was a fantastic evening and great to see Alex so involved in inspiring the next generation of Kent AC talent.
Also, special mention to Alex who competed in Edmonton, Canada in the World Triathlon Series finale last night (available to see here).
Alex came back from a difficult swim to run the fastest running leg by 40 seconds and secure a fab 11th place finish and in doing so, his place on the World Triathlon Series podium. Great stuff Alex!
