On Track In Dartford

Enterprising south-east London athletics club Dartford Harriers is currently undertaking a major upgrade to the club's home at Central Park Athletics Arena.  The improvements are to the club's 8 lane track and started in early November. Ground works to the infield and outer grass area have been completed and the new track surface will be laid in April/May 2015.

The track is currently open for business but with limited facilities however the clubhouse remains functioning as a base for road runs etc. Club officials are looking forward to the completion of the track upgrade which will allow extensive use of the facility by the local community including junior athletes.

Dartford Harriers are staging the 39th running of their annual half marathon on Sunday 15 March in 2015, a change from their traditional July date and are hoping to attract a bigger field with this attractive pre-spring marathon slot. Visit Dartford Harriers website for race details.
