KFL Rough Common Report

This Sunday saw the Kent Fitness League XC series draw to a close (maybe to the relief of some). There were only 4 tri club members at the final race at Rough Common near Canterbury (maybe because it was a long way just to get very wet feet) but all 4 acquitted themselves well in particular Katie and Sally who were the first and second Sevenoaks AC ladies in. Aided by the tri club Sevenoaks AC finished a very credible 4th overall in the league.
