Fleet-footed runners required for winter racing

Surrey League cross-countryFleet Street Runners – the media-based athletics club – is seeking runners to join its cross-country team for the 2015-2016 winter season.

The team will be competing in the fourth division of the men’s Surrey League this autumn and we are seeking interested journalists, PRs and editorial support staff to join us.

The average course length is around five miles and there are four fixtures between October and March, taking place on a Saturday afternoon in south London and Surrey.

We welcome all abilities from experienced competitors to the first-timers just looking to improve their fitness.

To join, you must be over the age of 17 and employed in the British media. UK Athletics-registered athletes may compete for us, unless their first claim club is already registered in the League.
