Format

Our Year Long Competition

OPEN LEAGUES: There are now 4 Leagues for 2017 based initially on best 5k times in 2016 (where there is most evidence of times), BUT also reflecting 10k/10m / Half marathon times where there are apparant anomalies.

 

LADIES LEAGUE: All ladies included irrespective of times.

 

VETS LEAGUES: Separate Male/Female Leagues. For Men this applies to M40 and above age categories and for women F35 and above. Age categories applied as at race day.

Virtually every running club will have a Grand Prix Series of races throughout the calendar year designed to encourage members to race over a wide range of distances. The events we select tend to be more local, although there are exceptions, and none are included where entry is difficult or over-expensive. Club camaraderie benefits from large numbers turning out in their club vests - join in and enjoy our days out.

Events are spead throughout the year - you don't have to do them all, but the more you enter - the higher your points total will be. You can join the club partway through the year and still have a chance of success.

 

Every club member is included - if for any reason you don't want to be - just let us know.
