Assembly League

The Assembly League, now in its 43rd year, takes place on Thursday evenings during the summer from April to September.   The six road races provide competitive, fast paced runs over approximately 3 miles for men and women. Races are for club runners only and culminate in prizes for individual and team performances at the final race. The venues are at Beckenham, Victoria Park (East London), Battersea Park and Tottenham Marshes (new for 2018). The races are fast and furious and give runners of all abilities an excellent opportunity to prove themselves on the road over the shorter distances.
