The Assembly League is an inter-club series of six races. The races are open to all Serpies.  All entries taken on the day. Usually, the first Serpie to arrive collects our numbers and hands them out. The races normally  attract about 200 runners of all standards. There is no entry fee as the club pays this as one of your membership benefits. If possible, please run in a Serpie top.

Travel: the nearest tube is Mile End (Central, District and Hammersmith lines). It is about 25 minutes walk from the station to the clubhouse. The nearest Overground stations are Hackney Wick and Homerton. The clubhouse is also within reach of several bus routes: S2, 8, 30, 236, 276, 277 and 388. There is a cycle rack outside the clubhouse.
