Sign up for the first SAL track & field match

Our first track & field match of the 2016 season is the Southern Athletics League (SAL) meeting on Saturday 16th April at the Lea Valley Athletics Centre

Last year our team finished the season in 5th place in the League, very narrowly missing promotion - this year we really want to be promoted and we need your help!


We need two men and two women scorers for each event and non-scorers are also welcome, so you can try out other events. We would love to see some of our U17 and U20 young athletes competing as part of our team too.

Please contact the Serpie captains if you have any questions or to sign up. Any standard is welcome: it is a very sociable event and you never know what you could be good at until you try it. The club will organise to travel together by train.

The events at this meeting are:


  • 100m
  • 200m
  • 400m
  • 800m
  • 1500m
  • 5000m (men) & 3000m (women)
  • 100m hurdles (women) & 110m hurdles (men)
  • 400m hurdles
  • 2000m steeplechase
  • 4 x 100m relay
