Club Championship

Introduction

The club has two internal championships to foster competition between members. There is the main championships and there is the trail championships. Both championships consists of a number of races at which members can pick up points depending on where they come in relation to other members. At the end of the season, there are trophies for the mens, ladies and over-all age graded champion.

The purposes of the club championship are:

  1. To provide a focus for competition for club members throughout the year.
  2. To encourage club members to try a range of events over different distances and terrains.
  3. To raise the profile of the club by having as many members as possible taking part in the chosen events.
  4. To support other local clubs and event organisers by including as many local events within the championships as possible.

Women are scored as men but separately

Age Graded Champion

From the main championship races the Age Graded Champion is calculated.

This is based upon timed races over a measured distances. Using known world records for each age and from each event, the relative performance percentage of the runner can be calculated and the high the percentage the better. This method allows us to compare the performances of all members independent of age and gender. At the end of the season the Age Graded Champion for the club is declared
