Club Road Championships

The Serpentine Club Championships are a series of races with trophies for each race’s male, female and age-graded winners. The 1k and 5k races are part of the “grand-prix” (including the 1-mile and 3000m track races) and are organised by the club. The races are now included below. 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 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, highlighted in yellow.
