2019 – Fell Championship – Races

 The format and scoring system are as in 2018, with your best 7 races from 15 to count and must include two of each length. First Harrier back takes maximum 25 points, 2nd 23 points, 3rd 22 points and so on, with all participants receiving a minimum of 1 point. There are separate competitions for senior men and ladies.

As we take part in a number of fell relays throughout the year, there will be additional points awarded for those making themselves available and competing at the events. And to try and encourage Holmfirth representation throughout the year at the English and British Championship races not included in the Harriers championship, further points will be awarded to those taking part, regardless of finishing position!
