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 school years in the tenderfoot. Total club scores are based on age adjusted performances in the main race, tenderfoot and relays.
8 or 9 clubs take part in the league with a wide age range of runners taking part. Ideal events for families.
