Club championship races 

The 2019 club championship races are:

How it works

The Club championship runs from January to December.

The competition consists of six mixed sex groups comprising runners of similar ability. All current year club members go into a group at the start of the championship year based on their best 5K/Parkrun (or equivalent) time in the previous year (or the year before that if no races were entered in the previous year).  Anyone with no race time is added to the group with the slowest times.  Anyone joining the club once the championship has started is added to a group based on the same criteria.

Points are awarded for each race. Within each mixed sex group, the Dragon finishing highest placed in the race from that group gets 10 points, the second placed Dragon gets 9 points, third placed 8 points and so on. Where more than one distance is offered on the races page points are awarded for each distance.

You must complete a minimum of five races over the year to qualify for the championship.  If you take part in more than five races your best five scores will count towards your overall score. You must have entered all the races as a member of Dragons Running Club (Sale).

The winner of the club championship is the person with the most points following the final race.  If 2 or more members end the season on the same points then the winner is the person with the highest number of points overall.  If there is still a tie the championship will be shared.

The club will publish a list of championship races at the start of the year – it is up to members to book themselves onto the races they wish to enter.  Many races fill up early so please book on as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
