Eden Juniors

Road Race Championship


January sees the start of our Road Championships. We use a series of races of various distances, mostly organised by other local running clubs, for members to compete in for Championship points.

For 2017, we have kept the 'three sections idea'. Each of the three is completely distinct and will have it's own points & prizes. We've added a couple more of the locally-organised races (note some provisional dates).
  • The Road Championships events are shown below, comprising 10 events - 9 x 10k + 1 x 5.3m races
  • Penrith Parkrun Championships (10 events)
  • Long Distance Championships (6 events, one of which was 2016 Derwentwater 10) (Note 2 more for 2017-18 LD Champs are listed)
Each will use basically the same points system, which is devised in an attempt to promote improvement and participation, meaning that it is not just about outright speed or ability. We try to support as many local races as we can, and the Championships have become an integral part of our Club activities

There will be worthwhile prizes for 1-2-3 in both the male & female competitions.

Eden Runners – Road Race Championships 2013


There will be at least 17 races in the series. 5 will be 5k, 7 will be 10k, with 3 half-marathons and 2 ‘one-off’ distances. 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 Rapid Ronnie. He turns up for the Endmoor 10k, South of Kendal, one Wednesday evening in July. He is a fully paid up member of Eden Runners, and has remembered to bring his green ER vest. Some of his club team mates have turned up too, there are 8 blokes and 6 lasses. Ronnie has a stormer of a race, and finishes impressively in 45.06, a good 53 seconds faster than the time he ran at the Three Bridges 10k in April. He was 3rd male Eden Runner to finish. All of his team-mates manage to finish in one piece. Fortunately, he has brought a calculator to work out how many points he’s got from the race:

Completing the race – 5 points.
PB Points – 15 points
Place points – Place points – 15 points. (8 male ER finishers – 10 points for 8th, 11 for 7th, 12 for 6th, ....15 for 3rd place, 16 for 2nd, 17 for 1st ER. So Johnny gets 15 points for 3rd)

So Ronnie wins 35 points from this race (5+15+15)

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.
