An invite to join Kingston Athletic Club & Polytechnic Harriers from Our President.

With contact details.

Dear athletes,

Dear parents and guardians,

Congratulations for having represented your School in today’s Borough Schools’ Cross Country Championships - well done!

If you enjoyed the experience of Cross Country running, or if you are generally interested in athletics, you may want to join Kingston Athletic Club & Polytechnic Harriers (K&P), your local track and field athletics club.

We provide training by qualified coaches three times a week in all running events and all aspects of athletics including jumps and throws. We also offer free Cross Country training sessions in preparation of the Belton/Holland/Yates Kingston Schools Cross Country Race on 24th January 2009.

We have coached very successful athletes including Mary Iheke, silver medalist in this year’s English Schools Senior 400m, Tom Parry, U17 100m hurdles finalist in the National Championships, Molly Renfer, U15 Surrey Sportshall Champion and now one of the top U17 cross country runners in Surrey, Dominique Blaize, international junior heptathlete and Felix Hatton, Surrey record holder and selected for the national javelin squad.

Our young athletes won last year’s Surrey Downs Cross Country League, and in the 1st match this season, won the U13 and U15 events. In the summer track season, our junior squad was promoted to Division 1 of the National Young Athletes League, and our Senior Men won promotion to the 2nd division of the British Athletics League, placing us in the top 24 clubs in the country. We are competitive, but above all we are a friendly club, and we enjoy training together and competing as a team, where everyone can make a valued contribution.
