What's ELVIS?

ELVIS is the East London Five Interclub Series - a set of 8 races, each of which is hosted by one of the participating clubs. The team competition is between the Elvis clubs on the basis of 6 men and 6 women including a minimum of 3 vets to score. Most races are accessible by public transport, but there will be car share opportunities too. We need fast runners for the scoring, but we also love to intimidate the opposition on the start line with a sea of red shirts. If this is your first summer with the club, we can guarantee you a fun race series regardless of how fast you run. If you're an old hand, we need you too. The more the merrier, and although there might be the old hill there won't be any mud so road shoes are all that you need and a club shirt (ok, maybe a pair of shorts too!).
