Another year and hopefully, a great selection of races that will draw you into the 2014 Road Championships!

For those new to the Harriers or unfamiliar with this inter club competition, the championship series provides all senior runners with an opportunity to compete against each other and gain points. There is a separate male and female championship and points are awarded based on your finishing position amongst other Harriers; 25 points are awarded to the first male and female over the line, then 23 for second place, 22 for third continuing down to 1 point - all runners take away a minimum of one point.

This year 15 races have been selected including a mixture of local and/or popular/highly recommended races. All races are on the road and the distances vary from 6 miles to half marathon distance; there’s plenty of opportunity to test yourself and achieve your running goals.

Whilst you can run all 15 races it’s not essential; you must however run a minimum of seven races (7 to count) including a medium (9 or 10 miles) and a longer distance (half marathon) race to be in a position to win.

As in 2013, there will be an ‘all to count’ and a ‘local’ award for those who run all of the ‘local’ races.
