Dartford Road Runners would like to invite members of Dartford Harriers, SLGR and Central Park Athletics to a mob-match to see in the new year.
As the community of runners in Dartford continues to grow, both not only in terms of runners, but also clubs and events, we wanted to do something a little bit special as early in 2019 as possible, without interfering with family plans or the KCAA Cross-Country Championship.
Therefore, and with the kind permission of the Lullingstone parkrun team, we are entering a four-way mob-match at Lullingstone parkrun on Saturday 12th January. It would be the first occasion on which the four Dartford clubs have been in team competition with each other, although we are of course proposing that the race be held on friendly terms, and in the spirit of the parkrun event.
To promote attendance, we are proposing that this is an ‘all-to-score’ mob-match, in the same manner as a cross-country event, and each runner will be scored in descending order. (eg. If there are 85 runners, the fastest runner will score 85 points, the second 84, and so on). So there’s therefore no upper limit on the number of runners, in fact – the more the merrier!
The Lullingstone venue is well-provisioned for car parking, toilets, public transport, and refreshments. We hope there is opportunity for the teams to meet and socialise in the café afterwards.
