WOULD YOU LIKE A CHALLENGE FOR 2019?  We are delighted to have another 10 places in the London Landmark Half Marathon and we are looking for runners ready to take up a challenge. 

REGISTER YOUR INTEREST HERE https://ageconcernepsom.org.uk/fundraising-events/

The LLHM is on Sunday 24th March 2019 and this year's runners were young, old, experienced runners, new runners, the fit and the not so fit!  So everyone is welcome. 

They all took up the challenge to run and raise funds for Age Concern Epsom & Ewell's Befriending service.  We raised enough to support 33 volunteer befrienders for a year - an amazing success.   The LLHM 2019 will be raising funds for our new Men's Club - a club aimed at battling social isolation exclusively in older men.
 
The atmosphere and organisation of the run was fabulous and all the runners have said what a great event it was to be a part of from the organisation before the event ... to the route and support on the day.
 
“Thank you again for all of your support and organisation. It was an amazing event and I am so pleased that I was able to support a local charity.”  NESSIE
 
Thank you so much for all the support you have given us in the run up to yesterday.  It was a great event and I really enjoyed myself. It was a pleasure to be part of the Age Concern team.” CARRIE

BAL Division 1, Match 4, Liverpool 4th August 2018 Print

British Athletics League, Division 1, Match 4

Liverpool, 4thAugust 2018

 

The final match of the 2018 British Athletics League season saw Kingston & Poly’s Senior Men make the journey to Merseyside for the Liverpool Harriers fixture. A cavalcade of South West Londoners, native and adopted, descended upon (or ascended to?) the North West on Friday evening, staying in a variety of locations in and around the city. Team Manager Chris Hall kept an eagle eye on Facebook Messenger to ensure that the main group travelling together from London Euston made it in time, which fortunately was the case.


The day itself, seemingly a BAL custom now regardless of the actual weather forecast, was warm and mostly sunny – thankfully a bit cooler than Eton and Portsmouth but enough to come away with a beetroot-red tint to the skin. The build-up was by far the easiest for this match, too – all events were filled nice and early, albeit missing a couple of first-teamers who any team would miss. Even so, spirits were high and we went into the match knowing that beating Windsor, Slough Eton & Hounslow (that’s one team for those new to athletics clubs) would guarantee safety in Division 1 – a feat very few would have predicted. Even Sale and Liverpool weren’t safe should we get a particularly good result, so there was all to play for.

4th place seals survival in YDL division 1 Print
Written by Frank S

After weeks of warm, dry weather, the last match of the YDL season instead brought high winds and relentless rain. Due largely to the start of school holidays only a small K&P team travelled to Portsmouth, but it soon became clear that the other teams were also struggling. What we lacked in numbers we had in class and attitude, not least thanks to some of K&P’s top athletes making a very welcome return to the team. Despite the atrocious conditions, our athletes were willing to go out and score points, many in 4 to 5 events. Like in the matches before, our main strength was in the field, which we even won (!) this time. On the track we missed many events, but several top places compensated for the gaps. After narrowly missing out on 4thplace in the first two matches by 2.5 and 3 points, for the second time in a row our team finished ahead of Portsmouth and Guildford. The 4thplace in the last match ensured 4thplace overall in the division, above the relegation zone. We will again compete in division 1 next year – well done everyone who contributed to the K&P YDL team as athlete or official during the 2018 season. The preliminary table:
