2011 CC Champs

 

Individual Awards

Six races completed to qualify. Best 7 scores from 10 races.

Age at AGM date determines age category for the season in grand prix awards . If you change age category during the season you are eligible for the new category in the individual grand prix races.  This paragraph does not apply to championship races.

 

Fees and Race Details

Race entry fee is £3.00 for grand prix races. Enter on the day.

Championships (except for the fell race) must be pre-entered as per the entry form.

 

New for 2010

As an experiment at Grand Prix races there will be an additional 10 spot prizes (£5 vouchers) given out at the finish of the race, starting at 10 th and then every 15 places this will hopefully get prizes to those that rarely win anything but will mean prize giving won’t go on any longer!.

 

 

 

 

About Us

The Vets section is one of the largest and best supported sections of the club. We compete in YVAA Grand Prix multi – terrain races, Road Relays Championships, Cross Country Championships, Fell Championships, the many Road Championship races and The Track and Field Champs. We also send teams to the National Road Relays at Sutton Park each year. Road Relay and Cross Country

 

Championships are particularly well supported with 30+ runners often turning out for the teams. When we get a strong team out we are always in contention for medals and have won silver medals at the BMAF National Road Relays in recent years as well as many Yorkshire medals in all events.

 

Winning medals is great for the individuals, teams and club of course but is not the only reason for taking part. Without the non ‘A team’ runners these events would be not only a lot less enjoyable as a team but virtually empty as an event. We welcome all vets into our teams no matter what standard so if you’re over 35 and fancy a run out please join us.

 

 

Vets records

For some time Ive been trying to collect your times for distances from 5K to a Marathon. While I have managed to cajole some information out of a few people there are still loads of runners that have not given me any times. As you will see (on the MEMBER's Page) weve posted those. Almost any time supplied is likely to get in the top ten simply because we have so few contributors. So why not let me have your times and see yourself in the top ten for your age group. Click on the link (to e-amil ROB) at the top of the page, then Email your best times. Thanks.
