The following leagues are exclusively for club runners. The league events are currently free of charge to Metros members and all are welcome.
THAMES VALLEY CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE
Every two-three weeks at 11.00 am on Sundays between October and March. The courses are roughly five to six miles. There are usually eight fixtures, with men and women of all abilities running together over mostly cross country, some footpaths and a little road.
This year, to reduce impact on the environment, the league is not supplying disposable cups at races – there will be water at the finish, and at some fixtures tea and coffee but you MUST bring your own cup.
Co-ordinators: Al and Jane Scoffham

A series of usually five events on Sunday mornings between May and September starting and finishing within parks – Battersea, Dulwich, Perivale, Headstone Manor (Metros host fixture) and Regent’s Park. The main event is a road race of 5 miles or 10 km followed by a 1.5-2 km Tenderfoot race for 6-14 years olds (plus beginner adults or those returning from injury). This is followed by an under 7 Fun Run of 300-400 m and relays of 300-400 m – teams of four for women, men plus two other mixed teams. Individual awards are based on age categories in the main race and Tenderfoot and club scores are age graded in the main race, Tenderfoot and relays.
