The club championships is a friendly competition for all members. It is often based on the 10 events in the Kent Grand Prix or nominated by the Committee with local events added and a marathon of your choice. The marathon must be an official measured marathon time from a UKA measured event from 2022.
To compete in the club championship, you must wear your club vest when you run. If you run in any of the events listed above you will automatically be counted and your points will be taken from the event results.
Up to 6 events will be counted. However, you must compete in a minimum of 3 (including a marathon if you want to include this). Your best 6 results will score if you run more than 6. You will get 10 points for running in the event. The first 20 members of each sex to finish will score extra points with the first home scoring 20 points descending to the 20th club finisher scoring 1 point.
Men’s and ladies are scored separately. There will be awards for overall men’s and ladies and also in age groups as follows: Men’s seniors, V40, V50, V60 and V70. Ladies seniors, V35, V45, V55 and V65.
With regards to age categories, any individuals crossing an age threshold during the year will automatically enter the competition for their age on the date of the first race they run. Any competitor that comes of age during the year and after the first race who would rather enter the competition in a new category will only score in the races of their new category. If this affects you, please inform the captain of the first race within your new age category. Your points in the younger category will the be deleted.
Awards will be presented at the annual club presentation night. All members are very welcome to participate no matter what your reason for running is or how competitive you are.
Further news on the club champs and latest standings will be posted on the website after each event.
