LEN HATTON 1928 – 2016

Kingston AC & Polytechnic Harriers are extremely sad to have to report the death,at the age of 87 in Monte Carlo on 20th July,of our long-standing Patron,and Past-President,Len Hatton. Len,not to be confused with our current Chairman,Les,has been a more-than-substantial benefactor of both Polytechnic Harriers,since his first association with our predecessor club shortly after WW2,as well as the present Kingston AC & Polytechnic Harriers from the merger in 1985.

Presentation of the Clubmark award by England Athletics :  Tuesday 30th August at 6.50pm

The presentation is to be by Julia Bailey at the club, hopefully outside, if the weather continues to be good! We would like to invite any K&P member down to participate in the presentation and photo opportunity. Wearing a club vest will ensure you are in a prominent position in the photo so we are asking you to wear your club vest on the night.

A Series of two progressive workshops open to all Leaders and Coaches.

In response to attendee feedback, these workshops have been updated for 2016-17, so that they are now aimed at assisting all coaches, regardless of their qualification level, or the ability/age of the athletes they are working with – from the 12 year old multi eventer, to the senior International Discus thrower, to the recreational road runner attempting their first 10km race.

British Athletics League Division 2, Match 4

Nottingham, August 6th 2016


Match 4 of the British Athletics League season took Kingston to a hot day at the Harvey Hadden Stadium in Nottingham, whose owners recently purchased an eighth lane to make it suitable as a BAL venue.

Match 3 had brought a maiden Division 2 win for K&P in the modern era, and hopes had been high that promotion could be achieved. For the first time we were in a position of being able to decide our own destiny - we ‘only’ had to beat Swansea to see ourselves promoted, as opposed to previous years where promotion had been possible but relied on several teams having nightmare days.
