We're all over social media!!!

Hi everyone.  We hope you are all healthy and safe in these uncertain times.  We are missing seeing everyone at the track, particularly at this time of year when we should be starting to get into the main track season.

There are still things going on which you can join in with - lots of challenges across the club, including a Strava League, the Living Room Athletics Challenge, Kestrel 400 Kinetic Challenge to name just a few.  Anyone with any other ideas of what you'd like to see, please just let us know.

Keeping in touch in 2020 has never been easier.  We have this website plus

two Facebook pages

and any of the contact details on our Officers / Coaches page

Hopefully we'll be able to see you again in person soon.  In the meantime, keep fit and stay healthy.

 
Vets League Team Manager (mens) Print

Unfortunately, Rory MacFarlane is stepping down as Team Manager for the men in the Vets League.

He was going to manage the team for this season and then resign (due to too many work commitments), but with all the matches for this summer having been cancelled now seems like an appropriate time to transition to a new manager.

Rory is very happy to help that new manager(s) transition into the job as smoothly as possible giving his assistance as much as he can in the process.

Please let one of the committee know if you might be able to take this role on.

Thanks.

Coronavirus Lockdown

We hope that everyone is safe and well in the current shutdown.

Things have clearly been very turbulent for everyone recently and we are trying our best to understand all that is going on with respect to club activities in the coming months.

At the moment there have been lots of event cancellations and every league will be adversely hit in one way or another.

The biggest event to get cancelled to date is the English School Athletics Championships, which will be a massive disappointment to many - as we had our biggest club representation there ever last year.

Most leagues have had their first or first two fixtures cancelled - although some may add an additional fixture to the end of the season.

Rather than list everything here - the most up to date situation, as we know it, is all contained within our fixture list on the site.

You will have hopefully received notice of how we intend freeze your subs in the interim period and how we are dealing with the EA subscription.

Please bear with us - we are working overtime at the moment to try to resume club activities in the best manor possible as soon as we are allowed to and to ensure smooth running of as much as we can control in the meantime.

Thanks for your patience.

Living Room Athletics

As a bit of a fundraiser, a means of keeping fit and hopefully to offer a little bit of a competitive challenge, may I introduce "Living Room Athletics".


We hope as many of you as possible will have fun doing this. 


Please do let us know how you get on - it would be great to hear your scores, how it went and maybe even see videos of you having a go.


Thanks from Richard and all at K&P.


 
Coronavirus Shutdown Print

Coronavirus and Kingston & Poly

It is with great regret, as many of you will already know, that Kingston & Poly (and in fact the whole UK athletics world) has effectively had to shutdown in a physical sense due to the coronavirus outbreak.

This includes all training at Kingsmeadow, which is also shut, and the suspension of all Kestrel Club and evening group activities there.

Momentum Sports evening group athletes will continue to get training set (under whatever circumstances are available to us) remotely, if athletes should choose to do so.

Other coaches will continue to work with their athletes as much as is humanly possible at this very tricky time.

We can all only hope that everything gets back to normal sooner, rather than later.

Stay healthy and look after yourselves and your loved ones.

See you all as soon as possible.
