We are Premier League, Say We are Premier League!
Men! We've risen like a winning cake on Great British Bake Off into the upper echelons of Midlands XC running. I hope you're all looking forward to being lapped by 20yr old Uni Students who run for England while it rains and you get mud in your teeth.
Men's Division One, League Fixture One is in a far away place called Cheltenham. I think that is left of Narnia and just past Mordor. The race is on 12/11/2016. Captain Tim Price anticipates a midday meet up at K&D cricket club will be required for everyone carsharing or travelling in convoy. Please let Tim (email@example.com) know if we are to expect you at the club. We don't want to leave anyone behind (again).
If you are not 100% sure of your eligibility to run (ie that your affiliation to K&D 1st claim has been confirmed) please do get this confirmed before you take part!
Please check the file below for your name and details if you intend to run XC for us:
If you are not on this list then please let Tim know that you are keen to take partClick to Read More

For those of you interested in the goings on of the committee you can find the documents they produce here:
Oh what fun we have on the committee. Last time our Chairman hired in a trapeze artist and Calvin Harris (I have no idea who he is, I just googled 'Famous DJ' - Darren) to DJ during the meeting*. We'll be looking for more people to join the committee in April. Its never too early to consider lending a hand.Click to Read More
Tissington Trail Half Marathon
An invasion they're calling it. They haven't seen such a force in Tissington since the English Civil War. The masses of K&D poured into Tissington this weekend. In their clan's green and gold the troops donned a set of leggings that could have blinded opposition archers from 500 yards. In psychedelic zebra print they ran; a herd of Zebra is called a Dazzle appropriately enough.
Among many of the brilliant performances were the likes of Jo Tork, Amanda Marklew, and Paul Jeffrey, all of whom ran their first ever half-marathons.

Congratulations to Rob Houlston who won September's Runner of the Month award.
Rob was rewarded for his continued improvement over the last several months.
His recent time of 19:02 takes him within a hairs breath of breaking 19 minutes at parkrun for the 5km distance.
At the same time he enjoyed a fantastic breakthrough performance at the Kenilworth Half where he broke ninety minutes for the first time. His time of 89:23 capped off a summer of great improvements for Rob.
Congratulations and long may the PBs continue.Click to Read More
