The race that is synonymous with Kembla Joggers and arguably our toughest, the ‘9 mile’, is on this Saturday 20th July!
The race is all the more special as we again run in pursuit of the Eric Brown Trophy, awarded to the winner on handicap. This special award celebrates the decades long contribution of the late Eric Brown, life member, former president and friend to many KJ members.
The 9 mile represents Race 12 of the 2019 Mizuno Winter Series and one lucky KJ will go home with a brand new pair of Mizuno shoes just for competing, so come along and jog, plod or belt it out, just be part of it!
Please note the earlier start times - races for juniors kick off at 1:00pm, one hour earlier than usual, with the 9 mile starting at 2:00pm. The 9 mile is a handicapped event and the cut off for registrations is strictly 15 minutes before race start.
