Kent AC has a number of organised training groups who run together supported and are led by qualified coaches. Our training groups are made up of all levels of runners from beginners to international athletes who come from London and some from further afield.
Training groups normally operate from Ladywell Arena in Catford (South East London, SE6 4QX) on Tuesday & Thursday evenings throughout the year.
Ladywell Arena is only 4 miles from Central London and is well served by public transport being only 13 min by train from London Bridge and has 8 bus routes serving itThere are a number of organised groups who train with qualified coaches all of whom are DBS checked.
