Fell Championships

In 2022 there will be a “Main Champs” consisting of 6 races – 2 ‘Short’, 2 ‘Medium’, and 2 ‘Long’.

Your best 4 counters will score, but you have to do at least one of each distance i.e. your 4 races can’t be just the 2 short and 2 medium races with no long counter.

Scores will be calculated as a percentage of the overall winner’s time – calculated separately for males and females. This “Main Champs” will determine the male and female Club Fell Running Champions. Prizes will be awarded to Overall 1-2-3 male and females. Also there will be male and female vet category prizes for V40/50/60 awarded to the highest placed vets not in the overall top 1-2-3.

There will also be 3 “Sub Champs” – short, medium, and long.

In each category there are three races IN ADDITION to the 2 races in each category in the Main Champs i.e. 5 short, 5 medium, 5 long races in total.

In each of these Sub Champs your best 3 counters will score i.e. if you do the 2 main champs races in a category, you only need to do 1 of the additional three sub champs races in that category. If you do just 1 of the main champs races in a category, you need to do 2 of the additional 3 races in that category. If you do none of the Main Champs races you can still do the other 3 races in a category to get a score. Scores will be calculated as a percentage of the overall winner’s time – calculated separately for males and females.

Prizes will go to the top runner in each Sub Champs who hasn’t already won an overall or vets Main Champs prize. There will be no vet prizes for the sub champs.

This format is aimed at having a focused main Club Fell Champs series of races but still allowing plenty of opportunity and flexibility for getting out and racing in a club competition context. You may choose to focus on the Main Champs or to target a particular distance. To score across all 4 champs you would need to do 9 of the 15 races.
