Fitness League - Juniors


The fifth and penultimate round of the 2011-12 Kent Fitness League junior competition was held at the Gravesend Roadrunners AC fixture at Meopham, on Sunday 15th January 2012.  The race at Nurstead Court is arguably the toughest encountered in the KFL junior calendar. Although two miles was mentioned as the race distance, it was some way short of that.  It did, however, incorporate several steep inclines and descents as well as some treacherous frost-hardened stretches.    

Four Thanet Roadrunners AC juniors competed, with 10-year-old Alex Kavanagh first home yet again in the U13 Boys’ category, preceded only by the U16 winner, James Graves of Swanley & District AC.  Oliver Cooper, who had run at the Kent Schools’ Cross-country Championships the previous day, was next to finish, giving TRAC second and third overall.

Finishing positions in the 34-runner field, along with category placings and race times are listed below for the TRAC athletes:

  2nd Alex Kavanagh     1st Boy U13                 11:02

  3rd Oliver Cooper       2nd Boy U16                11:30

10th Rebecca Hales      3rd Girl U13                  13:18

21st Maddie Stirk         9th Girl U13                  14:39

In the overall standings, Alex has an unassailable lead, having won all five of the U13 Boys’ races to date.  Oliver Cooper, meanwhile, remains in second place amongst the U16 Boys and Rebecca Hales has climbed to third place in the U13 Girls’ table. 

The final leg of the series takes place at Blean Woods, Rough Common, Canterbury on Sunday 19th February 2012, with the Junior race starting at 10:20.  Being relatively local for most, it is hoped that the club will have a good turnout of both the senior and junior members.
