The name MABAC dates from 1977 when the League was first set up. The prime mover was Alan Blatchford, who died in September 1980. He organized a running group at the British Airways Corporation works in Weybridge (now British Aerospace). Ralph Henley brought in runners from Matthew Arnold School, Ashford. Hence MA-BAC.

MABAC arranges a series of races throughout the year, particularly aimed at the fun runner. Most are cross-country events held on Sunday mornings in some beautiful parts of the Surrey countryside, and are very popular with club members and guests. As well as the senior race of just over 8 km (5 miles) there are also joggers’ and junior events of about 4 km (2.5 miles). Afterwards, runners have been known to find a local pub.

Other events are also held, including two popular open Races

Cranleigh 7/14/21 Unique Challenge event you can choose your distance on the day 7 – 14 – 21 miles

Surrey Slog Half Marathon  Challenging Cross country Half Marathon on the beautiful Holmbury Hill.
