Club Championship

The club runs its own internal championships, divided into gender and age categories:


MEN LADIES
Senior Men Senior Ladies
Veteran Men over 40 years Veteran Ladies over 35
Veteran Men over 50 years Veteran Ladies over 45
Veteran Men over 60 years Veteran Ladies over 55
Veteran Men over 70 years Veteran Ladies over 65

In October each year the committee selects a number of races over various distances. Club members are allocated points for each race they compete in depending on where they finish compared to other members. At the end of the championships, the points are added up and the person with the highest score wins.  There are male and female, as well as various age group categories and prizes are handed out at the Annual End of Season Party, which usually takes place in November.

Please note the following:
- Championship points will be awarded for finishing places in the race specific to age categories. 
- The Club Committee will substitute races in the calendar should this be necessary due to an event being cancelled.
- Every possible effort will be made to replace a cancelled race with one of a similar distance.
- All trophies will be awarded at the End of Season Party & will be at the discretion of the Club Committee.

Virtual Club Championship for 2020-2021

Following the success of the recent Virtual Races it is with great excitement that we are able to announce that 2021 is the Inaugural "Alchester Virtual Club Championships�.


The Alchester Virtual Club Championships will follow the same format as the normal Club Championships, there will be a total of 20 races and your best scores in 15 races will be your total for the year.  If you don�t want to do a distance, have a bad run or miss a run, it doesn�t matter as your worst 5 scores will be ignored.    

As with the normal Club Championship there will be prizes awarded at the annual awards. The races will be across a wide range of distances, so hopefully enough variety for everyone starting this month and ending in November.  

Dates & distances for this are:

As with previous Virtual events you will be set a target time and the run will need to be completed within a set period of time, targets will be set once a month. 



Points will be awarded based upon who beats their target time by the biggest margin in each race and these will be carried forward into the Championship.  



We hope that everyone is looking forward to it, we are very excited to bring this new Virtual Club Championship. 



A list of further planned distances and rules will follow shortly.
