2019 Midweek Assembly League

The Assembly League was ‘set up in the mid-1970s as competition between the London business houses, such as the banks, stock-exchange, Post Office and major local employers (many since closed) such as Molins and Johnson & Phillips at Deptford’, the latter two engineering firms who at one time had big factories in South London. As industries have vanished from London along with their sports clubs, the League has shifted to consisting largely of established running clubs from the London/Kent area. Teams from Stock Exchange Athletics Club and Lloyds keep up the workplace running tradition, with other teams taking part including Cambridge Harriers, Kent AC, Eton Manor, Dulwich Runners, Serpentine Running Club, Dartford Road Runners, Victoria Park Harriers, Petts Wood Runners, Beckenham Running Club, Eton Manor Athletics Club, Ravensbourne School, Ravens City of London Running Club and Aquila

The dates for this year’s Assembly League have been published, but two venues are yet to be decided – let’s hope that neither of them are Tottenham as last year!. The first and last at Beckenham start at 7.15pm, the remainder at 7.30.  Let me know by email if you’re interested but you can just turn up on the night just make sure you bring your Cambridge vest. There are all sorts of levels of runners from Parkrunners to racing snakes so everyone will be accommodated. Steve Brown
