Championships FAQs


It’s meant to be fun for runners and something we hope all members will feel able to participate in. We do give out prizes, but it’s mostly about enjoying the challenge of local races and socialising with other club members. We try to choose popular local events with reasonable entry prices that we think (or know) club members will enjoy.
The champs is organised using public races that you’ll need to enter. This year there are three categories of races – fell and trail, road, and parkrun. You need to complete one race from each category to qualify for the champs. The races are listed in the Totley AC private Facebook group and in an email to members.
We give prizes for the first three people in each gender and age group. The groups are: Senior Women (under 40), WV40 (women over 40), WV50 (women over 50), WV60 (women over 60) and WV70 (women over 70). Also Senior Men (under 40), MV40 (men over 40), MV50 (men over 50), MV60 (men over 60) and V70 (men over 70).
In each race, we award points based on your position in relation to other Totley runners. For example, the first Totley runner to finish will get 1 point, the sixth Totley runner 6 points, and so on. It doesn’t matter where you finish in the race overall, only in relation to the other club members running. For this reason, it is very helpful if you can list your club when entering (and if you don’t do this for whatever reason, please message Colin Osborne to tell him!).
The competition can be fun if you’re in the running for a prize, or in a bit of friendly rivalry with another club member, but we hope it won’t put you off. Most of us don’t enter races expecting to win them, anyhow. We hope that the motivation to join in the races, challenge yourself, cheer on your clubmates and chat afterwards will be enough. The prizes are a bonus really.
The champs is organised using public races that you’ll need to enter. This year there are three categories of races – You may enter as many races as you like from each category. We will take your best scoring race in each category, add up the scores, and rank everyone’s total score from lowest to highest. The lowest score in each gender/age group wins, the next highest gets second, and next third. We also present a prize and shiny silver cup for the best overall woman and man.
In a word, no. The fell and trail races category is very broad and includes a lot of terrain you are likely to be familiar with, including the grass in Endcliffe Park and gravel paths around Carsington Water. We hope everyone would feel comfortable with these, at least. Even the ones that are called ‘fell races’ are more like trail races really, and none of them harder than running round Burbage. We’ve tried to indicate for each race what it’s like. Some are hillier than others, but to be honest you can always walk the hills (and lots of people do). If you’re not sure, message Colin Osborne or other club members to find out more about each race.
