This is a competition for all members to participate in. The club nominates specific races or club events spread throughout the year In normal times we select generally local, but not always, races over distances ranging from 5k - half marathon. More often than not we will have one of the largest, if not largest turnouts and we run in club vests / t shirts which helps us spot each other on the course. Members are divided into 6 leagues, plus a ladies only and male and female vets leagues. Points are awarded based on your finish position counting just club members.
In view of the current pandemic it is not possible to select races from the usual event calendar, Hopefully things will improve and we will regain confidence to book races in advance with a high degree of certainty that they will go ahead. Given all the uncertainties this year there will be 12 events plus the best score from the seasonal handicaps making 13 scoring opportunities. The best 8 scores will count. It will be possible for newer runners to achieve 8 scores without running more than a 10k. We are planning 3 x 5ks, 2 x 5m, 4 x 10k, 1 x 10m and 2 x Half marathons plus the 4 handicap runs with the Winter handicap 10m in December.
The club will organise events as we did last year until usual racing recommences. The Ackworth Half and Priory 10k will not go ahead but will be replaced by a new 3 race series (a 10k, 10m and Half Marathon) with places offered to club members first. More details will be announced asap - medals currently in design!
In the first instance we have put in event dates starting in March in the hope that we may be able to race in groups of 6. The first event will be a 5 miler - details to follow. The dates we have set may be changed for events later in the year should we be back to normality.
We managed to finish a series in 2020 and we will again!
