Roads Club Champs 2019: The committee, in consultation with some of the road running group have decided on the following program of road races for the road racing series in 2019. We have settled on these races to provide a spread of distances, from 5k to marathon, to provide a spread of dates, from 31st March to early October, with the races evenly spread through the season, allowing for a break during the summer holidays. Lastly, to have a focus on SAL championship races, which gives us a great opportunity to run in quality fields and decrease the chances of the races being closed early.
