We have kept the Club Runs Championship format the same as 2016. The number of races is 19 and only your best 8 results count. This give runners more choice on which runs they do and allow for a more varied range of races to better reflect all aspects of the club. If you have any questions please contact one of the club captains whose details can be found here.
Lots of members run in these races, making them good social events as well as exciting races.
Scoring rules for club championships can be found below the race calendar.
Exact dates will be provided as they become known. After each race we calculate the points for each member and you can view how everyone is doing in the standings section below.
