Met League XC, Wormwood Scrubs, 12th November

Below are some details about the Met League XC this Saturday at Wormwood Scrubs near East Acton

As well as an individual event it is also a teams race for open and masters grades. All grades compete in the same race. We are looking forward to seeing a good club turn out at this popular fixture.

Race venue/start: Wormwood Scrubs Park, adjacent to Linford Christie Stadium W12 0DF

  • Nearest tube: East Acton, Central line
  • We recommend you go straight to the course and turn up ready to run. There are some toilets and changing facilities at the course inside the stadium.
  • Mens and ladies both race 7.6km. The course is 2 laps of a flat course. Given the recent rain it will be soft and muddy underfoot. Spikes are reccomended.
  • Start times are 1:15pm for the women and 2pm for the men NOTE THE NEW RACE START TIMES THIS YEAR – DONT BE LATE.
  • Be warmed up and ready to go.
  • More details on the race course, access/parking etc can be found here:

There is no need to register to run – just turn up and collect a race number from our club representative. Both first and second claim members score points. 

If you didnt race in Claybury, but will be racing this time can you email our Met League manager Darren to let him know by email:

 When you arrive look for the Serpentine RC gathering (usually evident by red vests/jackets etc) and collect your race number. Don’t forget your Serpentine vest and pins for your race number.

If you raced at Claybury you will need to get a replacement number as there was a fault with the Claybury bar codes.

 Post-race we generally go to the Pavillion pub on Wood Lane.
