Parkrun Championship

Parkrun Championships

One approx each month from Jan to Oct. 2024

dates are shown below.

All Frenchfield, Penrith, 9am Saturdays.

All paid-up club members taking part in any of the above are automatically included.

Please wear your club colours (vest/t-shirt etc) so that you can be identified by your clubmates – not everyone knows everyone else!

2024 Championship; There are groups for both males and females based on your Champs PB times in 2023. These groups are published in TeamApp and are shown on the 2024 results files, but whatever group you are in, no need to think about that – just turn up and run!

The points system is still the same –

  • Ranking points will increase from 10 for the last male & female finishers in each group, all the way through to the first finisher in each group.
  • PB points. All pre-2023 champs times are ignored, and 15 additional points will be given every time you beat your previous series PB time; your starting PB target will be your 2023 best time + 2%. If you beat that time at the first round, you’ll get PB points (15) . If you beat THAT time at the next one, there’s another 15 points, etc etc. In that case, your new PB becomes your target time for subsequent rounds.
  • A standard 5 points for completion of each round to all finishers.

Prizes – at the end of the series, we will award prizes to the top 3 finishers in each of the groups.

The whole point of this champs competition is to provide a focus for continued improvement, and works best if everyone respects their fellow competitors by putting in maximum effort every time.

Remember – in club colours, you are representing your club. Parkrun is intrinsically ‘not a race’…please treat all participants with respect and courtesy.

Finally, if you haven’t already done so, you can add Eden Runners as your ‘Club’ on your parkrun profile – if you know you haven’t already done so or need to check, just log in on the parkrun website to check. It’s not vital, but it helps us when compiling results.

And definitely finally – please don’t forget your barcode – we don’t want any Eden Runners appearing as ‘unknown’ on the published results!😬

Thanks for reading. Any questions, please let me know.

Parkrun Registration

If you are running parkrun you will need to register on the Park Run Web Site , download your barcode and bring it with you to produce once you’ve crossed the finish line – no barcode, and your name won’t appear on the parkrun results.
