Young Athletes League + Fraternity Cup & Sorority Cup

Here are details of this year's historical Fraternity Cup and Sorority Cup cross country race which first took place 84 years ago. The race is approx 5 miles and both men and women race togther. Plus our Junior athletes can race as guests in the North West London Young Athletes League.

As many members as we want can take part in this race, but only the first six (first claim members) men will score in the Fraternity Cup and first four (first claim members) women will score in the Sorority Cup.

Race details

The race is 5 miles approx and both men and women race together. Entry is open to all Serpies, although only first claim members will score.

Date: Saturday 25th November

Venue: Trent Park, Cockfosters Road, Enfield, Barnet EN4 0PS

The start is at 2:30pm and is adjacent to the car park inside the Cockfosters Road Gate, near the Go Ape. The hilly course is a great test for seasoned athletes and beginners alike and cross country spikes are the advised footware. Please note there are no changing facilities, but there are toilets and a cafe near the race start.

Help needed on the day

Please note I can't attend the race itself so you will need the following people to help or you won't have a team to score:

  • Registration - the team entry forms will need to be collected from the organisers pre-race, runners details collected and given to the organiser before the race start.
  • Results - like the Met League, our runners' positions and numbers will need to be collected at the race finish and submitted to the race organiser

If you can do this on the day, please let me know. Thanks very much

North West London Young Athletes League
