‘The world’s most exciting track meet‘ is back with a bang this Saturday 6th of July, as thousands are once again expected to descend on Parliament Hill for the 7th edition of the Night of the 10,000 PBs. Having attracted 8,000 spectators, as well as over 50,000 watching online, you could say that the atmosphere might be more Glastonbury than the usual serenity of Hampstead Heath come the last few races. The remarkable thing is, this isn’t organised by some big events company or a national governing body, but an […]
LUCA is announcing a revamped outdoor schedule for 2023. LUCA will host a pre-BUCS open meet in March and a championship event in June.

Lateefah Agberemi’s dominant display in the sprints and jumps earned King’s a second successive indoors title. King’s pipped Imperial to the title by 13 points, with 16 points coming from Agberemi.

St George’s extended their grip on the UH Shield, boosted by strong performances by Jennifer Nandi who picked up gold in the 1500m and 3000m. St George’s have […]

Well done to all who competed at Lee Valley last weekend. Results are now available on Power of 10, or click on the link below! We are hoping to be able to put on another meet this year with the new committee members, we will announce any further updates ASAP and the current team standings ahead of the meet so each club knows what they’ll need to go for gold (Dina’s got us in that Olympic spirit already!).
At an extraordinary general meeting held last week, club representatives voted to make changes to the committee and competition structure. LUCA has been dealing with a budget crisis caused by pandemic-related competition suspension and a steep decline in active volunteers. The EGM was called by the only two currently active committee members, Christian Pugsley and Abhilash Sivaraman. Attendees agreed on the need to focus on the core offer of the Cross Country League, Indoor Championships and a potentially stripped-down outdoor series. There was much debate about the potential to reduce […]
