The Assembly League, now in its 45th year, is a series of 6 road races during the “summer” from April to September that are only open to a select number of clubs in the South East (including BRC). Typically, they are on the first Thursday evening of the month and start around 19:30. Each race is fast paced and highly competitive across the full range of abilities, with a distance of approximately 5km for all.
Scoring is based on finishing positions of the entire team (male and female separately), with a minimum team size of 4 to count. There are prizes awarded at the end of the series (final race) for clubs with the highest results and individual age category’s.
The first and last races are in Beckenham, the second and penultimate at Victoria Park (East London), and the middle two vary year on year.
Race entry is paid for by the club, so it’s a great opportunity to challenge yourself and represent the club.
There is a Facebook group with further details: Facebook Group
All races are on the first Thursday of the month.
