Club Competitions and Summer Track Events

We actively compete in prestigious competitions such as the North West London Cross Country League and the Metropolitan Cross Country League, solidifying our reputation as a top London running club. These races occur on Saturday mornings from October to March, and are complimentary for all club Junior Members. While spikes are recommended, their necessity depends on the course and weather conditions.

During summer, we engage in the Middlesex Young Athletes League, with track meetings held at our Parliament Hill track and other local venues on Saturday afternoons.

Stay Safe On the Road

Our middle-distance athletes, especially, will often train on the roads. It's crucial to wear high-visibility clothing for visibility and safety.

Various tops, jackets, and tights with reflective features are available on the market for training nights. Additionally, we provide high-visibility jackets in different sizes that can be borrowed from the club room.

Coaches for young athletes may decline to take out anyone who isn't appropriately equipped.

Prioritizing the Welfare of Our Young Athletes

As a responsible London running club, we prioritize the welfare and safety of our young athletes above all else. For more details on our commitment to child welfare, please refer to our Child Welfare document.
