Mob matches are an opportunity to take on rival running clubs head to head. Several times a year we challenge other local clubs. Points are scored for both finish positions in the race as well as getting the largest number of runners out.
Our longest standing mob match is against The Stragglers each December. A much bigger club they regularly give us a stuffing (literally as we get a box of Paxo as a booby prize) however we intend to beat them one year!
Recently we have also started a mob match against Elmbridge Road Runners. We have challenged them in a home/away style at local parkruns. These are a much more evenly matched affair that we have so far come out ahead in.
