Championship details:

2023 – HHAC Fell Championship – Races

It was great to see pretty much a full racing calendar in 2022 (Results here), after the 2 previous years unfortunately had to be scrubbed for obvious reasons, so here’s to more of the same in 2023!

The format and scoring system for the 2023 Championship are as in 2022, so it’s your best 7 races from 15 to count, which must include two of each length (ie. Short, Medium and Long). 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 an additional 15 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!

And if you can’t race, but volunteer to sweep one of our races, then there’s some Brucie Bonus points up for grabs as well, so no-one misses out!
