Summer is the time to put the cross country shoes into hibernation and get out your road shoes. Unbelievably, the Surrey Road League starts next week (Sunday 13th March). For those that haven’t taken part before, these are a series of races over the coming months of distances from 5k to half marathon. Results are combined over the series and medals will be awarded at the end of the summer for overall winners and also for age category winners. These races are different to the cross country races, you enter the races individually rather than the captains doing team entries. 

The races and links for entries are:

The Wimbledon Dash 5k –  Sunday 13th March –

Ranelagh Richmond Half Marathon – Sunday 8th May –

Sutton 10km – Sunday 15th May –

Dorking 10 miles – Sunday 12th June –

Richmond 10km – Sunday 26th June –

Elmore 7 miles –  Saturday 16th July –         

Elmbridge 10km – Sunday 24th July –

All of the dates are also on the calendar on the club website.

Thames Hare & Hounds (THH) are showing a provisional date for the Parkland Relays (a 3 mile relay race in Richmond Park which is always great fun) on Wednesday 8 June. We’ll be in touch about entries for this nearer the time, once the date is fixed.
