Chingford League

Race 2 - Saturday 21st October 2017 - 2.30pm at Jubilee Park, Leyton E10 7BL - 5 miles approx

It will be mostly grass, but with some parkland paths, so trailshoes or studs will be preferable to spikes.


The venue is Jubilee Park E10 7BL. Race HQ is the pavilion at the southern end of Seymour Rd, where you will have access to changing rooms and showers. There's also a café in nearby Marsh Lane, at Eton Manor's club house.

Start times:1:45pm U13s, 2:05pm U15s and U17s
2:30pm Senior Women and Senior Men
As you know, the senior course is 5 miles approx.

There is car parking at the end of Seymour Rd and in Marsh Lane, but with the 48,55 and 56 on Lea Bridge Rd, the 58 and 158 on Church Rd, plus Leyton tube 15 minutes walk away plus the newly opened Lea Bridge Station 5 minutes walk away, public transport is a good option - unless you're VPH for whom cycling across the marshes is surely the best bet.
See you all there!

Chingford League - How does it work?

This is how the format works:

It is Race Series, competing with local and some London Clubs. Some races are on tarmac and others are pure Cross Country. Held in the Autumn/Winter months from early October to early March.

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.
No pre-race registration required.

Just turn up on the evening/on the day and take a race number from the ELR folder at race HQ. You keep this number for the whole series!

There are 5 team categories, each with 6 to score. Trophies are also awarded to the individuals, in 6 age categories, who have scored most points in the races during the season.
Senior Women: Vet Women (35), Supervet Women (45), Senior Men Vet Men (40), Supervet Men (50)


Ask if you are unsure! You can then use that number for the remainder of the series. It is that straight forward.
