The 2020 Club Championship has been re-structured in the hope of creating a more competitive event with bonus points being awarded for the first time.
15 races have been selected with the opener being the Ferriby 10 on 26th January and the season finale again being the very popular Doncaster 10k in November.
Scores gained in all 15 races will count towards your total score.
Points are awarded on a sliding scale from 100 points for 1st place down to 1pt for finishing in last place. Here are some examples.
If you came 250th in a race of 500 finishers, you would score 50 pts.
If you came 100th in a race of 1,000 finishers, you would score 90 pts
If you came 1,800th in a race of 2,000 finishers, you would score 10 pts
Using the last example –
Take your race position and divide it by the number of finishers. 1,800/2,000 = 0.9
Deduct 1 from this figure. 0.9 – 1 = -0.1
Multiply this figure by -100. -0.1 x -100 = 10pts
Volunteering Bonus Points
If you help out/volunteer/marshall at any of our 2 track events or 3 races you can earn 20 pts each time – so that’s up to 100 points just for helping your club out !
Milestone Bonus Points
Run 500 miles in the year to earn 2o pts, reach 1,000 miles and that’s another 20 pts, manage to get to 1,500 miles and that’s another 20 pts (proof would be needed by say Strava screen shot or similar)
There are a few triathloners out there, so for you there’s 40 pts if you complete one and for the Marathon / Ultra runners there’s 50 pts for you (if you make it over the finish line)
As per previous years, awards will be presented to men and ladies in the following age categories:
