Summer League’s second virtual fixture takes place from 13th to 19th July. You have a week to record a 5 mile time and a 400m relay time. Ideally record your run using a GPS watch, but if you don't have one, just do your best as this year's summer league is run on trust.
Children can take part in the Tenderfoot race. They need to run a mile and 400m for the relay. Nieces, nephews, children’s friends are all welcome to take part!
In the true spirit of summer league, don’t forget to tag @morningtonchasers and @thesummerleaguelondon in your picnic and baking photos!
You can view and submit results for virtual races here.
