For those new to the Harriers or unfamiliar with this 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. 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 20 for second place, 18 for third continuing down to 1 point - with all runners taking away a minimum of one point.

This year 16 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 5 miles to 15 miles distance; there’s plenty of opportunity to test yourself and achieve your running goals.

Whilst you can run all of the races it’s not essential and only your best 8 performances will count. You must however run a minimum of four races which must include two short races (5 mile or 10K) and two middle/longer distance (10 mile, half marathon or 15 Mile) race to be in a position to win.
