Club Road Championships

From 2017 the Serpentine Club Championships are split into separate championships for athletics (track & field) and road running. The shorter track races will no longer be included in the overall age-graded championship (except 1mile and 3000m as part of the grand prix).

The Serpentine Club Championships are a series of races with trophies for the male, female and age-graded winners of each race. The 1k and 5k races are part of the "grand-prix" (which also includes the 1-mile and 3000m track races) and are organised by the club so there is no advance entry – you just turn up on the day. The other races are open races and you must enter them yourself.

Start of 2018 5k club champs in Battersea ParkTo count for club championship competitions you must:

  1. Be a first claim member of Serpentine Running Club
  2. Have entered under your own name
  3. Compete wearing club colours

The Serpentine Age-Graded Championship uses performance factors to calibrate Club Championship race times, to put everyone (male and female, younger and older) on a level playing field. The overall championship will be awarded to the first claim member with the highest average percentage from any 5 of the championship races (road and track).

The results of the club championships are published in the results database.

Any marathon run this year will count towards the Club Championships. When inputting marathon times in the results database the official time should be used, and for championship contenders this will be checked at the end of the year against published results.

The dates of the club championships are listed below. They are also included in the Serpentine Planner where they are highlighted in yellow.
