Club Track Championships

The Serpentine Club Championships are a series of races with trophies for the male, female and age-graded winners of each race. This year we are including more track racing as part of the championships in recognition that more members are now competing in track & field. The 1mile and 3000m track races are part of the "grand-prix" (which also includes the two shortest road races) and are organised by the club so there is no advance entry – you just turn up on the day. The other distances are virtual races where we use your best result from any of the league or open meetings as recorded in the results database (as we do for the marathon).

To count for club championship competitions you must:

  1. Be a first claim member of Serpentine Running Club
  2. Have entered under your own name
  3. Compete wearing club colours

The Serpentine Age-Graded Championship uses performance factors to calibrate Club Championship race times, to put everyone (male and female, younger and older) on a level playing field. The overall championship will be awarded to the first claim member with the highest average percentage from any 5 of the championship races (road and track).

The results of the club championships are published in the results database.

The dates of the club championships are listed below. They are also included in the Serpentine Planner where they are highlighted in yellow.
