We have three club championships; men's, ladies, and an overall age-graded championship, so everyone has a chance.
One event is nominated each month as a championship event, covering various distances and surfaces up to half marathon.
In addition the fastest marathon run by each member during the qualifying period will count towards a 13th event.
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 7 placings from the 13 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.
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.
In order to qualify for the final results you must complete 7 events out of 13.
