Surrey Road League

This is a team and individual competition and is separate from the Summer Grand Prix which is an internal Stragglers competition. Some of the races in the Grand Prix are also part of the Surrey Road League. For individuals and team scores it will be the best five scores to count.  More information can be found on the Surrey Road League website. The following races are part of the Surrey Road League:

  • Richmond Half Marathon (Sun 5 May)
  • Dorking 10 miles (Sun 2 June) (not in Grand Prix)
  • Richmond 10km (Sun 16 June)
  • Elmbridge 10km (Sun 21 July)
  • Wimbledon 5km (Sun 11 August)

UPDATE: Pls note that the Elmore 7 has been dropped from the Surrey Road League this year as it is the same weekend as the Elmbridge 10k. As a result the Elmore 7 is no longer part of the Stragglers Summer Grand Prix. The full list of races included in the Summer Grand Prix is shown below. You can find links to these and other key races in the Key Race Fixtures here.
