DCAA Road Racing Competitions
    About the Dorset Road Race League
    The Dorset Road Race League (DRRL) is a long established road running league in which competitors can race in up to 12 events of varying distances, spread over Dorset, to win individual and team prizes each year. Competitors must be first-claim members of clubs affiliated to the Dorset County Athletics Association (DCAA) and registered to England Athletics to be counted.

    For both individual and team competitions, the best 7 results will score towards the League.  For Under 17s the best 3 of 4 and for Under 21s the best 6 of 11 will count. Some league races also incorporate DCAA championships, open to those of Dorset eligibility with separate prizes to go to seniors and veterans over 40 years old.
