Get Involved & Volunteer


Kent AC is a voluntary organisation.  All the benefits of your membership: access to competition, team management, training groups, coaching, subsidised transport, networking, social events, access to the track, etc, and the administrative activities behind these, eg membership and finance are carried out by volunteers.  These are ordinary members who are active athletes, many of whom have a career, or family, or both.  Many of them do more than one job, some have been doing their role for a very long time.
