Running Competition for Juniors


Running Competition for Juniors

Cross Country

From October to February, junior members of all age groups are encouraged to compete for free in the Metropolitan Cross Country League. There are also junior races in the London, Southern and National Championships and we hope to see Serpie juniors racing in these next season!

As well as the club competitions, The London Youth Games and London Schools Athletics both organise cross-country races during the season with entries coordinated by schools or Westminster.

See the Serpie planner for upcoming cross country races.

Road Running

During the summer, Serpies take part in the Summer League, which has shorter races suitable for all ages. Races are held on a number of Sunday mornings from June to August and families are especially welcome.

In April, there is the London Mini Marathon (entries by qualifcation at borough heats), and in May it’s the Westminster Mile (individual entry).

Throughout the year many Serpies compete in local 5k parkrun races which are suitable for age 11 upwards.
