2019 Club & Marathon Champs

As in recent years, we will run two Championship competitions through the year: a road & multi-terrain competition, in which you need to return a result in some nominated races, and a separate marathon competition.

Trophies will be awarded to the winners in the various categories in spring 2019.

2019 Road & Multi-terrain Championship

Confirmation of this year’s Championship races:


Feb 24 Wokingham HM HM Road Berks Champs
Apr 19 Maidenhead 10 10M Road Berks Champs
May 04 Hurstbourne 5 5M Road Special Request
12 Marlow 5 5M MT Berks Champs
June 09 Hampshire Hoppit HM MT  
July 07 Burford Bolt  10K MT By Request
Aug 11 Burnham Beeches 10K Road Berks Champs
25 Headington 5 5M Road
Sep 15 Swallowfield 10K 10K Road
Oct 06 Basingstoke HM HM Road  
27 Ricky Road 10 10M MT Date TBC
Dec 01 Mapledurham 10 10M MT


This differs from the preliminary set by the substitution of the Headington 5 for the Kintbury 5, following a valid observation received that packing all three 5M races into a four-week window risked eliminating anyone who couldn’t run during that comparatively short period.
Please note…
