Dear athletes, families and friends,


All who have been out on Sunday 6/11 to support Match1 of this year’s Downs Cross Country League will have seen that this League is now the biggest Cross Country League in North Surrey for young athletes aged 8 to school year 6 (U11), school years 7-8 (U13) and school years 9-10 (U15). With ten clubs participating, over 80 athletes contesting the U11 and U13s races, and still 42 runners in the U15 age group, this is a record. So if you are wondering why the number on your disc may have been a little lower that what you were used to seeing last year: You are now up against many more runners, and you are running with athletes who are top of Surrey, some are top nationally. So all our achievements have to be weighed against these facts. Yet you will see that we are very much up for this challenge.

News of the death of yet another regular performer from the Polytechnic Harriers Young Athletes Group of the 1970s, who have departed long before their time, is a great sorrow and yet again will make some of the Club’s older members question their own mortality.

Stoke Park Cross Country Relays 2016: Strong runs, top finishes and medals for our U17 girls.

This report starts with a big thank you to all athletes and families who, despite the school holidays, made themselves available. We had a fantastic team spirit, and I hope we can carry this forward to the 1st Downs League Cross Country match for all aged 8 to school year 10 next Sunday 6th November as well as the subsequent races to come.


My athlete of the match award goes to Gabriel Lewis, who, after we learned that you can make a team count by having an athlete run two legs, indeed doubled-up AND managed to run the 9th fastest time of all. He’s a hero!

Are you a parent/athlete/supporter? Do you want to help support the club as an official?

The club is running very short of officials for athletics, if you are a regular supporter of events and want to get closer to the action, officiating is a great way to get involved.

Courses are run regularly throughout the winter, below is a selection. Provided a commitment to officiating is shown to the club the small course fees will be reimbursed.

A Health & Safety course is mandatory for every official who hasn't taken one already, Officials aren't limited to one discipline, and are fully supported in their education by both club, and Surrey County AA

Any questions regarding courses should be directed to the General Secretary or Officials Secretary.

South of England XC Relay Championships, Wormwood Scrubs Park, 22 October 2016

Building on their experience in the recent Southern Road relays championships, the U17W and U15B teams were joined here by teams at U13G and U17M. As far as I’m aware, it has been many a year since Kingston and Polytechnic have fielded road or cross-country relay teams at this level, but they all performed with great distinction against the strongest clubs in Southern England.
