2018 Club Championship

What is it?

6 Nominated Races

2 short races, 2 medium races and 2 long races – the classifications being in-line with those published in the FRA calendar.

You are free to complete as many races as you please, but championship points will only be calculated for 1 short, 1 medium and 1 long race (obviously taking your best result if you complete more than one race in each category).

A strava segment

In addition to this there will be one further opportunity to score points. This will be an individual challenge and based on the Winter ‘Andycap’ route. As you may know, there is a ‘Strava’ segment set up around this route, and the times from the current year (up to and including the 9th December) will used to form a ranking scoring like a race:

The Rules

  • 6 races with 3 to count (one short; one med; one long)
  • 1 strava segment to count
  • Points awarded for DFR ranking with 40 for 1st place; 39 for 2nd; 38 for 3rd etc

In the event of a tie a runners next best results will be taken into account until the tie is resolved. If the tie remains unresolved the head to head results between those tied runners will be considered. If the tie remains unresolved the championships will be shared.
