The Club Championship is a handicapped set of races.
At the start of the year, the captains and vice captains predict a time based on past performances and current form for everyone and from that a percentage handicap is calculated. This gives everyone a fair chance and levels out the playing field.
Points for each race are then calculated on how well you did against your handicap – as a new and improving runner, this can work quite nicely in your favour! You need to do at least 6 races to qualify and points are taken over your best 8 races.
The most important part of the club championship is to have fun, encourage one another and support other club’s races. At the end of the year, after the AGM, the championship results are announced and the trophies are awarded!
Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we had to cancel our 2020 and 2021 Club Championships. Fingers crossed we can go ahead with a full programme of races in 2022.
