The League

The League consisits of 15 teams in 3 different divisions.  Following on from last seasons promotion, East Essex are now in Division 1

Division 1: LOSS, Billericay, Benfleet, Barking, East Essex
Division 2: Rochford, Castle Point, Brentwood, Havering, Pitsea
Division 3: Dagenham, Hockley, Nuclear Races, Phoenix, RED


Points are awarded for finishing position – 1st receives 1 point, 2nd receives 2 points etc.  Ie, low points are good.  For divisions 1 & 2, the first 7 males (including a mimimum of 2 vets) & 4 females (1 vet) from each team score, while in division 3 the first 6 males (2 vets) & 4 females (1 vet) score.  Vets are 40 plus on the day of the race


Any club members who are 17 plus on the day of the race can take part (no guests are permitted).  It is suitable for all standards, from elite to novices.  Everyone plays their part – even if you aren’t a scorer, you may steal points from other club members by finishing in front of them.  Club kit must be worn.


More detailed information will be released 1 week before each event, but races are generally around 7km across mixed, off-road terrain (you may get muddy).  Wherever permitted, drinks & cakes will be supplied at the finish by the host club.

All races start at 10am, but you will need to arrive by 9.30 latest to register, pay and warm up (look out for the East Essex feather flag).  The cost is £5 per person payable via training voucher or credit card (no cash please).  Note that parking at some venues may be tight & some car parks require payment, so please share wherever possible
