Hey, quite simply, is there any form of ranking tables for general athletics/running clubs, not in particular leagues but just a general ranking tables of the clubs in the UK in terms of how good they are.... a silly question perhaps but just wondered if this existed?
I don't think there a league table as such, although I suppose the British Athletics League is the nearest thing for ranking clubs in terms of overall track & field.
Just looking at road running, the National 6 and 12 stage relays are probably a very good indicator of which clubs are strongest.
There must be something because I read in the local press about how Derby AC are getting promoted or relegated sometimes - but I am pretty sure it's based on specific track and field meets not road running. In fact reading what David says it must be the British Athletics League he refers to.
BD123, It's a great Silly Question!
There's 4 Cross Country Leagues near us.The National Road Race Relays and also very important to the National selectors, as DJ39 says. An individual can put in a couple of bitchin' times, but they are irrellevant unless they get spotted. The Road Race relays are the one opportunity to compare people on the same turf.
