MABAC Cross Country

Next race: Lightwater, 11am 16th Sept

What is MABAC?

It’s a fun run league, formed in the 1970s. Its name derives from "MA" (from MAGIC - Matthew Arnold Gym Instruction Class) + "BAC" (ex British Aircraft Corporation). There are currently nine member clubs. The races are held in some beautiful parts of Surrey and SW London. Quite often there’s some very pleasant country pub to head afterwards. If you’d like an alternative to the Sunday morning social, why not come along?

Each runner earns a minimum of five points per race (Windsor = eight), with the first six male runners and first three female runners home for each club earning extra points, dependent on finishing position. There is a separate or short course for walkers and joggers, who walk/jog one lap and earn two points each. So all participants score points for the club and the race is suitable for all speeds!

Races are around 5 miles (apart from Windsor which is 8 miles) or 2.5 miles for the short course.
