2023 EDEN RUNNERS FELL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Advance notice of next year's club champs.
In 2023 there will be an OVERALL champs along with separate Short, Medium, and Long DISTANCE champs. This allows people to either focus on the overall champs which requires participation at all distances or to focus on a particular distance according to preference or experience.
There are some small changes from recent years though….
The OVERALL champs will consist of NINE races (3 short, 3 medium, 3 long).
Your best FOUR races to count subject to the stipulation that you have to do at least one race at EACH distance, along with your best other score at ANY distance. i.e. You can't get a four race score with just two short and two medium counters.
Scores will be calculated as a percentage of the overall winner’s time- calculated separately for males and females.
Top spot in the male and female overall champs will determine the Eden Runner Fell Champions. Male and female prizes will be awarded to top 3 places and top spot in the various vet categories V40/50/60
The nine races are spread one a month between February and October.
There will be additional short, medium, and long races which along with the races in the overall champs at each distance make up the three DISTANCE champs. As there is an overlap between the overall and distance champs, prizes in the distance champs will go to the highest placed person not winning an overall champs prize.
SHORT champs This has the biggest change. There are an additional FIVE short races offered, so EIGHT in total. Your best FOUR races to count.
MEDIUM and LONG champs These each have TWO additional races, so FIVE in total. Your best THREE races to count.
