Saturday 2nd October 2021 - Chingford League Race 2 - Central Park, Rainham Road North, Dagenham RM10 7FJ.
Start Time: 11.00am for all runners.
This a 5 mile cross country race on a fast course, consisting of grass and trail. Suitable for trail shoes (not spikes). The race is FREE to all ELR club members and it is not necessary to complete any on line registration forms.
Please email email@example.com by closing date of THURSDAY 30th SEPTEMBER if you wish to enter. If you are not 100% certain you are able to run, please still add your name.
You will have a race bib and number that can be passed to you for your next race. Your number will have your name written in marker pen and will be prepared in advance. Once you have a race bib, this will be yours for the series.
Those of you that ran at Hog Hill on 18th September, please remember to bring your race number.
Central Park is the same venue as the relays back in April and the ELVIS race in June. Parking is available in the car park next to the rugby club.
We are looking for a volunteer from our club, to help with marshalling. If anyone is running the London Marathon and able to assist, this is an ideal opportunity as you will not be out training! Please let me know if you are available.
This is the second of seven fixtures overall (including a XC relay in March). Various individual and team category prizes awarded. Age categories equalised for Male/Female Runners.
We look forward to seeing more of you this time. The race does not clash with lunch time and you can come from your Parkrun. See you there.

Chingford League - Since 1955
A winter athletics league for N & E London: A mix of cross country and tarmac surfaces, over 5 miles or 5k. The league offers both a serious competition for fast athletes and a friendly welcome to all runners plus it combines with an inclusive ethos to encourage newer runners to "give it a go".
The mix of challenges is also perfect for parkrunners who are improving, but want to vary distances and terrain to boost their performance and progress towards goals like 10k, half marathons and beyond. If you want to take part, join one of our 16 member clubs - then it's free to enter.

This "Winter season" League usually consists of 3 road surface races, 3 cross country races and a cross country relay race.
The Event in March is the Cross Country Relay Race for teams of 4 (usually) and is now held on Wanstead Flats (Harrow Road) and hosted by East London Runners.
The races are free to all ELR club members. (ELR has paid an Annual fee to the League).
It is not necessary to complete any entry forms, but pre-registration (via your team captains) is required. You keep your race number for the whole series!
