Southern Vets’ League


Southern Counties Veterans’ Track and Field

Charles in 5000m track race

Serpentine enters teams in the Southern Counties Veterans’ AC League, which comprises four fixtures on Monday and Wednesday nights during the spring and early summer.

The league is split into various divisions (Serpentine are in the mid-London division) and men’s and women’s teams compete against each other over most of the track and field event programme (excluding hurdles but including race walk).

There are separate events for different age groups (men 35–49, 50–59, 60-69 and over 70, and women 35–49, 50–59, 60-69 and over 70). Aggregate points earned from each fixture determine the league position. Leading teams from each division go on to meet in the league final at the end of the season (usually early September).
