You’ll be ranked in each race according to your finishing position relative to other club members in your age-gender category. The first member home scores 50 points, the second member 49 points, etc. Even if you’ve scored a good result at a distance, it’s a good tactic to enter the other races in the same distance to prevent other members scoring equally well.
Note that your age category is set for the whole championship on 1st January. So, for example, a man reaching his 60th birthday sometime after 1 January competes in the MV50 category throughout the championship.
For 2024, the Marathon distance will be combined with the other distances in the Club Championships.
For both Championships the age categories are as follows:
Please read the rules below and if anything is unclear, please seek clarification at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trophies will be awarded in each age-gender category in each championship, to be presented at the Club award night.
The rules are straightforward:
- To qualify you need to record a result in at least one race in 4 of the 5 distances
- If you run more than one race at the same distance, only your best result counts towards your Championship score
- You’re competing against members in your own age-gender category, as stated above:
- Your Championship age category is determined by your age on 1 January
- Within each age-gender category, the fastest club finisher scores 50 points, the next fastest 49 points, and so on
- There’s one additional category that groups all members together and awards points based on age grade
- For your race result to qualify for the Championship you must run in Club colours and have registered your entry as affiliated to Reading Roadrunners
- Times will be based on individual chip times rather than gun times, where provided
