Club Championship

- PLEASE NOTE, THE 2020 SEASON FIXTURES ARE LIKELY TO CHANGE DUE TO THE EFFECTS OF COVID-19 ON THE RUNNING EVENTS CALENDAR. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES -

We have three club championships; men's, ladies, and an overall age-graded championship, so everyone has a chance!

 

For the men's and ladies competitions, 100 points are awarded for the first club member home, 99 for second, 98 for third, and so on. For the age-graded competition, 100 points are awarded for the club member with the highest age-grading, 99 for the second-highest, 98 for third-highest, and so on.

Age-grading is calculated using WMA 2015 road racing factors. This is based on the world record for the same distance and is normalised for age and gender (you can find an online calculator here).

The best 8 placings from 14 events score for the men's, ladies and age-graded competitions.

In the event of tied results, the highest scores will be taken into account.
 

Rules

Club kit must be worn at Championship events to score points, except for the marathon. Subscriptions must be paid during the year to be a trophy winner. Only 1st Claim members are eligible to win the Championship.
