This years Club Series Championship will be based on your finishing positions in a number of specifically selected races or events, some of which could be virtual.
I have tried to give members the chance to do not just road races/challenges but also off road whether it be trail or fell and over varying distances. There will be generous bonuses if members choose to do every opportunity per month and generous points for those members that would like to offer their help at our Club races throughout the year. I would also like to have considered introducing a piece of recognition to the members who give it their all, enter everything but are never going to get that shiny trophy at the Christmas Do, our last placed participants in each age category would receive a memento, to be determined.
There will be three categories for the ladies:
- Senior = 18-44 years old
- Vet 45= 45-54 years old
- Vet 55 = 55 years plus
There are four categories for the men:
- Senior = 18 - 39 years old
- Vet 40 = 40 - 49 years old
- Vet 50 = 50 - 59 years old
- Vet 60 = 60 years plus
- The applicable category for each member will be based on age at first event. Note that each HHH member can only compete in one category. For example, a V50 runner will only compete in their V50 category and not in the senior or V40 categories.
Scores will be awarded within each category as follows: 10 points for first HHH member to finish, 9 for second HHH member to finish, 8 for third, and so on down to 2 for ninth, with 1 point awarded for all other finishers.
In order to reward members who volunteer to marshal at HHH organised races, it has been decided that points will be awarded to each marshal at each HHH organised race.
There will be no limit to the number of races entered and all scores in all Championship races will count.
Awards will be presented at the Christmas Dinner Presentation Night.
