What is the Club Championship? we feel it is prudent to explain what the club championship is so here goes:
The 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, so to speak.
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 clubs races. At the end of the year, after the AGM the championship results are announced and the Bling is awarded! it might just be you who has won!
So take a look at what you fancy and book your races! We hope we have chosen something for everyone and also things for you to try…
