Summer League: Date Saver

The time is fast approaching for the start of the Summer League 2017. This is a real multi-ability, family-friendly league taking place on Sunday mornings over the summer.

The Summer League is a competition between a select group of London running clubs. There are 5 fixtures located in parks around Greater London. No need to pre-register, just turn up 30 minutes before the start time for a warm-up.

There are age-graded prizes up for grabs, and everybody who takes part scores points for Serpentine's standing in the league, so you are welcome whether 10k will take you 35 or 95 minutes. The entry fee is included in your club membership, so you can just turn up and race on the day.

The dates and places to put in your diary are:
