Club Road Championship

Championship details:

UPDATE:   The 2022 results are in.  See the News Story for full details

 

2023:

The races that make up the 2023 Road Championships are now on the website.  Broadly similar to 2022, there will be a mixture of short (up to and including 10k) and long (over 10k) races.

There are 14 races on the calendar, seven short and seven long.  Each Harrier needs to complete seven races in total with the seven best performances being taken into account.  Note that AT LEAST THREE races from the short or long category must be completed.

Bonus points will again be awarded for the Club 5, 6 and 10 mile races.

New for 2023 - bonus points will also be awarded for runners taking part in the summer monthly 5k handicap runs.

Once again there will be a male championship, a female championship and an age-graded championship. In each race the points will be awarded based on finishing position relative to other club runners, using chip times where appropriate.

 

2022:

10 varied races make up the 2022 Road Championship. Five of these are classified as 'short' - ranging from 5km to 7 miles - whilst the other five are classified as 'long' - ranging from 10 miles to half marathon. Each Harrier must complete six races across the year to qualify, with the three best 'short' performances and three best 'long' performances being taken.

For each race, points are awarded based on finishing position relative to other club runners. The first Harrier back will receive 25 points, the second 23 points, the third 22 points and so on with the points descending by one for each position. All runners will receive a minimum of one point, so in the event that there are 24 or more Harriers taking part in an event, then those finishing in 24th or lower will receive one point each.

Five bonus points will be awarded to anyone competing in the Club 5, Club 6 and Club 10 races (i.e. a maximum of 15 additional points).

There is a male championship, a female championship and - new for 2022 - an age-graded championship. In each race the points will be awarded based on finishing position relative to other club runners, using chip times where appropriate.

Age-grading of performances is based upon the tables produced by WMA, previously known as WAVA.

Only first claim members can compete in the Championship. All runners must state Holmfirth Harriers as their club when registering for each race, and club vests must be worn.

Running in the Road Championships is a great way to enjoy racing with your teammates, and I would strongly encourage all members - regardless of age or ability - to consider donning the amber vest and taking part. Good luck to all of you over the course of the year!
