Warwickshire Road Race League
The league is organised by the Warwickshire County Athletic Association (WCAA). It consists of a number of road races over a range of distances throughout the year and our own Summer 6 is one of the races included in this series.
The best of 6 count towards the team prizes, whilst the best of 5 count towards the individual prizes.
There are approx 12 Warwickshire clubs who compete in this league and we have had a small amount of success in the past. With a little extra participation we could get amongst the prizes and as a club we hope to give this a greater profile this year. To encourage members to participate we have included some of these races into our Grand Prix competition.
