Club Championship

Our Cub Championship is open to everyone in the Club and EVERYONE in the Club is encouraged to take part. It’s an opportunity to travel with other Club members to races in the area and to try some new races you might not have done before. Unlike the Club Series there are no special entry forms to enter the championship, by being a club member you are automatically in. All you have to do is choose at least one race from 4 of the 6 categories below. This year for the first time we have included a “Trail” category as a “middle ground” option for roadies and fell people! And of course you must run in your Totley vest!

As with any game or competition it really helps to understand the rules. There are now six categories of race, short fell (FRA rules means 10k or less), long fell race (FRA rules 20k or more), a 10k, a half marathon ,a trail race and a Park Run.

For the Club Championship members need to enter at least one race from four of the six categories. If a member enters more than one race from a category then the best score will be counted towards the championship. Points out of 100 calculated from overall position in race i.e. 100th out of 200 finishers = 50 points. Therefore if a member runs the Sheffield half marathon with 10,000 runners it is possible to score more points than running the Buxton Half with 2,000 runners. However the choices give everyone a chance to choose at least one race from four of the six categories.
