2018 Club Championship

New for 2018 is the Club Championship awards.  This consists of 10 events (1 each month except Jan/Dec) of varying distances, as shown in the table below:

Month Race Distance
February Wombwell 5 5 Miles
March Retford Half 13.1 Miles
April Maltby Memorial 5 Miles
May North Lincs Half 13.1 Miles
June Goole River Bank 10 Miles
July Grimsby 10k 10 Km
August Askern 10 Miler 10 Miles
September Isle of Axholme Half 13.1 Miles
October Burringham 10k 10 Km
November Doncaster 10k 10 Km

So that’s a total of 2×5 mile, 3×10 km and 3xHM races.

We have chosen a mixture of events that don’t clash with the road league and cross country series that aren’t too far to travel and don’t get booked up too quickly.
Out of a total of 10 races points will be awarded according to race distance, placing and age graded scores.

Age adjusted scores
5 Points for the highest age graded score 1st male and female
4 Points for the 2nd highest age graded score 2nd male and female
3 Points for the 3rd highest age graded score 3rd male and female
2 Points for the 4th highest age graded score 4th male and female

Distance points to every competitor irrespective of place, adjusted according to distance, as follows:
5 Points – Half marathon
4 Points – 10 miles
3 Points – 10k
2 Points – 5 miles

Points for finishing positions
5 points – 1st male and female
4 points – 2nd male and female
3 points – 3rd male and female
2 points – 4th male and female

The age grade will be based on a member’s age on 1st January at the start of the Championship year and will not be changed until the following 1st January.
The club championships are not compulsory; they are for anyone interested in some healthy competition. The events are open to all and you don’t have to enter every race.
Points scoring will be displayed after each event and club championship awards will be honoured during the AGM each year.
So all there is left to do is to start training. Enjoy!
