Track & Field bursts into life but NOT forgeting the London!
K&P's own Kinnaird & Sward Trophies herald the arrival of Spring on Saturday 16th with the home club hoping to defend the Sward(Field) successfully and to bring an end to Achilles' 6-win sequence in the Kinnaird Trophy(Track).The Hammer & Pole Vault(Noon) open proceedings with the first track event(400mH) due off at 2pm. The 8 teams are: Achilles/Epsom & Ewell/Hercules Wimbledon/Thames Valley/Windsor,Slough,Eton & Hounslow/Blackheath & Bromley/St Mary's University/Kingston & Polytechnic.
Whilst essentially a Senior Mens' 8-club contest,guests are welcome from other teams(inc.U20s/U17s of reasonable standard),but please call 01932 789758 first.
The day after,the club's London Marathon aspirants are in action - see earlier preview on Jan 5th(Target London) on this menu - whilst there is the friendly Walton AC Open at Stompond Lane(entries on the day).
