Martin Kelk Kent Vet 800m-1500m champion

In two memorable days at Erith, Martin Kelk took two Kent track titles in dominant style : on Day 1, Martin stormed majestically to the 800m title, 3 seconds ahead of David Coulson of Hailsham Harriers. Just 24 hours later Martin proved too strong for the rest and came away with 1500m gold, more than 100m clear of his nearest rivals from Bexley and Ashford. Martin is pictured 2 days later (in our clubroom) minutes after claiming our club championship 3,000m vet-40 title. He was to go on (2 days after the picture) to retain his club vet-40 800m title, one second faster than he posted last year. Martin rounds off a busy week when he defends his 1500m club championship title on Sunday.
