The Kent County Athletics Association

The area over which the association is responsible for athletics is considerably wider than the geographical county of Kent. Broadly speaking the inner London Boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham and the outer Boroughs of Bexley and Bromley are also included.  (For more details follow the link to affiliated clubs)

The association was formed in September 1990 by the amalgamation of the Menís Association, founded in 1920, and the Women's Association, founded in 1946. Both associations were flourishing at the time of amalgamation and had shared their main Track and Field championships for many years. Since the amalgamation the association has maintained the high standards previously achieved. (For more details follow the link to history)

A full programme of championships are held for all age groups from under 13 to Masters over 70 at distances of 60 metres (indoors) to 10,000 metres (on track or on road) to Marathon and including all field events, combined events, walking events and cross country championships. For the younger competitors we run a winter series of Sportshall meetings with its own annual championships. We have a large body of Technical officials from the highest level to those just starting to progress. We have a good relationship with the Kent Schools Association with much mutual help. (For more details follow the link to fixtures)

Within the County we have two English Athletics sponsored development Networks; one covering the London Boroughs, the other the postal county of Kent. These were launched in 2010 and we are seeking to develop good working relationships with them.  (For more details follow the link to networks)

In the past we have had athletes of the calibre of Steve Backley, Dame Kelly Holmes, Frank Sando & Sydney Wooderson representing us and currently our excellent members achievements are led by Grace Clements & Martin Brockman in the 2010 Commonwealth Games Combined Events and Natalie Gray, Andrew Combs & Robbie Farnham-Rose in the 2010 European Cross Country Championships. (For more details follow the link to race results)

The Association is managed by a Council which meets 4 times a year and is elected by the clubs associated with KCAA. The council appoints Sub committees to look after each area of activity and an Executive committee to take forward the work of the association. (For more details follow the link to constitution)
