Athletics: Tonbridge's Twilight Invitational aims to bring out the stars

8th August 2019

TONBRIDGE Athletic Club is joining forces with Tonbridge School to host its first Twilight Invitational Meeting on the evening of Friday August 30.

The aim is to showcase some of the country’s top athletes to the school’s Sports Centre alongside the best from Tonbridge Athletic Club.

Lizzie Yarnold, the double Olympic skeleton gold medallist at the Winter Games who was a member of Tonbridge AC in her teens, will attend help with presentations.

The evening will start at 6.30pm with junior races and ends with the men’s mile at 8.30pm.

It is hoped that one of the competitors will be able to record the first four-minute time on the school track.

Sponsors have been signed up to support each event but there are still opportunities to support the evening.

Entry is free and includes a programme, and the local community is encouraged to come along and enjoy two hours of top-level action.
