MidWeek Road Race League

Some background info

The MidWeek Road Race League (MWRRL) is our priority summer competition
Races are at roughly 2 week intervals from late May to mid July
Most of our rival clubs are in Hertfordshire.
The League has 2 divisions with a 2 up, 2 down promotion/relegation system each year. Both divisions have separate races.  We are in division 1 for the 2022 season.

There are 4 League races, distances vary, but 5 miles and 10k are most common.
The 5th race is a “Mob Match” between all clubs from both divisions.  The seasons awards are presented after this race.
Races are usually on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, always starting at 7.45pm
The host club provides refreshments after each race so although the competition is serious they are social events too.
Team competitions are based on 12 to score for men and 8 to score for women, with separate trophies, as well as the overall trophy with men’s and women’s scores combined.
There are also separate vets team competitions based on 6 men and 3 women
Individual awards are awarded in 5 men’s age categories (Senior, M40, M50, M60 and M70) and 5 women’s age categories (Senior, W35, W45, W55, W65)
