Summer grand-prix starts 16th June

The series of club championship races of 1k & 5k (road) and 1 mile & 3000m (track) — known collectively as the 'grand prix' — start next week with the 3000m at Paddington track. Registration for Serpentine members only from 18.30. First race at 19.30.

The Summer grand prix is a traditional part of the club championship calendar and provides some shorter races for members only with a mix of road and track for variety. This year's dates are:

There are trophies for the male, female and age-graded winner of each race, and for the overall series.

All the races are free to enter, just turn up in good time to register, warm-up and race. Please note that for the races at Paddington (3000m & 1 mile) the £1 track fee per person will be payable. You must wear your Serpie top to score for the championship.

All the races except the 5km will be held as several heats graded by speed and/or gender.

We need help with marshaling, recording, timekeeping and track judging. Please contact Steph ( if you can help.
