Race summary

Runners were tested to the limit by an unforgiving course and appalling weather conditions. The race is always popular, being the right distance at the right time in the build-up to the London Marathon. With the race also hosting the Kent Championships at 20 miles, it attracted a quality field from across Kent, London and the home counties. The start in Spring sunshine soon darkened to drizzle then heavy rain & hail driven by a fresh Easterly wind.

Roy Palmer on winning the event outright became the first Harrier to win a Kent Championship on the road. Congratulations also to Jenni Van Deelen, Sarah Maguire and Carol Reid who took the Ladies team title in the Kent Championships.
