Club Championships 2020

How it works – 2020

This year there will be more prizes! For each race there will be points on offer as well as a % age-related score. There will be a prize for the top 3 men and women who have scored the most points in races, as we have done in previous years. There will also be prizes for the best 3 men and women who are not in the first three above but have the highest number of points accumulated using % age related score at each race. In this way we hope to make the championships more inclusive.

At each race the first Spirit home will gain 20 points, the second 19 etc down to a minimum of  1 point for everyone who competes. In the % age-related competition the best % age-related score will gain 20 points in that competition and so on. Anyone running a marathon (road or trail) or an ultra will receive 10 points.

There will be 11 nominated races over the year. Runners must compete in a minimum of 8 races. For anyone competing in more than 8 races, their best 8 will score. In addition, each month runners can also compete in the club nominated Parkrun (arranged by Steve and Alison McMenemy) and submit their best age-related score at the end of the year. Runners must participate in at least one of the Parkruns to be included in the final championship results.

The races will be a mix of road and trail and we will publish the results more frequently so everyone knows how they are doing as the year progresses.

The races for 2020 are:

(please note some of these races will fill up quickly so it would be best to enter them as soon as possible).
