How the ATW Met League is run


There are 5 Metropolitan League cross country fixtures held in various locations between October and February. Male & female athletes from aged 11 upwards compete at each fixture and there are 6 races which are categorised as, under 13 boys, under 13 girls, combined under 15 boys and under 17 men, combined under 15 girls and under 17 women, combined senior women and veteran women then finally, senior men and veteran men. The senior and veterans races also include divisions one, two and three.

Everyone that completes their respective race, no matter what position they finish, scores for their club. These points are calculated after each fixture. After the final fixture the league results are totaled up and the winners are crowned.
