MABAC Cross Country

Next race: Windsor Great Park, 10am, Sun 13th Jan.

What is MABAC?

It’s an informal 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, and  often there’s a 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.
