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:
|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!
