Rosenheim League

The Rosenheim League is an inter-club competition for senior and U17 athletes (note: no U15 or U13 - check your age-group in Serpiebase), comprising five fixtures held on Wednesday evenings between May and July. The league is split into two divisions and we are in the Eastern Division. At the end of the season in August the leading clubs in the two divisions meet in a "final" to decide the overall champions. We first entered the Rosenheim League in 2001.

Originally a male-only league, the league is now open equally to men and women with separate races up to 1500m, a joint 3000m race and joint field events.

Each club can have as many competitors as they want and each athlete can take part in as many events a they want, although only one man and one women will score. The entry is free for Serpentine members but you need to wear your club vest in an event in order to score.
