***Fell Championship 2018***

23 races (7 Short, 8 Medium, 8 Long - but because one of the medium and one of the long are on the same date effectively it ensures people have a minimum choice of 7 races in each category)

Best 7 scores to count - cannot have more than 4 counters in a category, and need at least one counter in each category (so splits across the categories can be 4-2-1, 3-2-2, 3-3-1)

Scores for each race based on your time as a percentage of the winners time.
Incentive to race more than 7 of the races is to improve your counters and overall score.
Top 4 from each of the Ladies and Men's Championships will be invited to form a Mixed Hodgson Relay Team (Sunday Oct 7th) as long as the 4th placed person in each championship has done a similar number of races to the 5th placed person in the other champs (i.e it would be unfair for someone to only race once or twice and find themselves in the team - in this case it will revert to the top 8 scorers across both champs).

Have included 9 races (indicated with a *) different to last year to freshen things up so apologies if your favourite race doesn't appear this year.

--------------------------------------------
Oct 7 - Hodgson Brothers Relay
Notes -
- if the Howgill Fell Race doesn't happen it will be replaced with the Sedbergh Hills Long race - Aug 19
- have included the Anniversary Waltz and Teenager with Altitude races as they are both cracking races but sadly this is the last year they will be run so get in there while you can.
I thought for a long time about reincluding Loughrigg in the champs this year but in the end decided not to include it. But I would encourage as many people as possible to run this race on Apr 11.
Hope this all makes sense. Any questions just ask.

Eden Runners – Road Race Championships 2011

 

There will be 9 races in the series. You can run as many, or as few, as you wish. The more you run in, the more points you will obtain..

The Ladies’ and Men’s Championships are scored separately. So at the end of the series, there will (hopefully) be a Men’s Champion, and a Ladies Champion.

So to take an example, let’s look at Runaround Sue. She turns up for the Wesham 10k in Nov. She is a fully paid up member of Eden Runners, and has remembered to bring her green and blue ER vest. Some of her club team mates have turned up too, there are 8 blokes and 6 lasses. Sue has a stormer of a race, and finishes impressively in 48.27, a good 53 seconds faster than the time she ran at the Richmand Castle 10k in Oct. She was 3rd female Eden Runner to finish. All of her team-mates manage to finish in one piece. Fortunately, she has brought a calculator to work out how many points she’s got from the race:

Completing the race – 5 points.
PB Points – 15 points
Place points – 4 points. (6 female ER finishers – 6 points for 1st place, 5 for 2nd, so Sue gets 4 points for 3rd)


So Sue wins 24 points from this race (5+15+4)

Some important points though:

Points awarded will be based on OFFICIAL RESULTS ONLY – it doesn’t matter what your own stopwatch says.
Club vests MUST be worn.
Only fully paid-up members can take part in the Club Championships.
