Hi reader

Kentish Killer Management Team – We need your help

The summer is well and truly over, the leaves are starting to fall, we’re edging towards Halloween and the launch of the 2020 Kentish Killer is fast approaching. This is going to be the 10th anniversary of the event and we’re hoping it’ll be one of the best, check out the design and merchandise at the link below

For those of you new to the club, the KK funds the majority of the clubs activities ranging from social events, coaching sessions, time trials, sportives, subsidised kit and website development, not to mention the considerable charitable donation we make each year to the KSS Air Ambulance Service. The KK is currently managed by a small number of people who do a great job in getting the event through to event day, this isn’t sustainable so we need to build a larger management team that doesn’t rely on key individuals, and reduces the support required.

If you’re interested in joining one of the groups below please email and we’ll get in touch with you.
