Assembly League


Assembly League

The Assembly League is a series of six races open to all members of the league clubs. Most of the clubs in the league are based in east and south-east London e.g. Victoria Park Harriers, Dulwich Runners and Beckenham RC, with Serpentine being the most westerly club. There are a couple of school athletics clubs who are members making these races slightly unusual since adults and juniors race together.

Races are held on the first Thursday of the month from April to September, starting at 7.15pm (April & September) or 7.30pm (May – August). See the planner for details of the current year’s fixtures. Please wear your Serpie top when racing.


  • The opening and closing races of the series are usually held in Beckenham, based at Beckenham Cricket Club. This is a 3 mile, single lap, undulating street course. There are toilets, showers, changing rooms and a bar with food at the clubhouse where the race is based.
  • One or more races are held in Victoria Park, based at the Victoria Park Harriers clubhouse. This is a 3.5 mile, flat, two lap course wholly within Victoria Park. There are toilets, showers and changing rooms at the clubhouse.
  • Other races are held in Battersea Park, Blackheath Park and Dulwich Park, which are all 5k races within parks.

Results & Scoring

Full results are distributed a day or so after each race and Serpie results are loaded into the results database. Clubs earn points based on finishing positions and there are prizes awarded after the final race for the winning club and best performances etc.
