2021 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS
With easing of restrictions, the committee agreed to resume club champs this year. Club Champs can be claimed from 29th March 2021 from any official event which took place from that date. We do not have a final date up until we will be collating results to (it’s best to leave it open for the time being, hoping that we can celebrate distribution of awards on the Club Night, around Christmas time).
The running club are keeping the same format for the 2021 club championships, as the last couple of years. The club champion for each distance will be the fastest person (or highest XC position) in each age group for an officially measured race between from 29th March 2021 and TBC. If you have a time you wish to be considered, It will be down to YOU as an individual to notify Paul Davison via Facebook or send an email to GBRCraceresults@hotmail.com .
The following distances are included :-
5k, 5 mile, 10k, 10 mile, half marathon, 15 mile, 20 mile, Marathon
Best XC position (only NESS XC races can be used for this category)
The age groups are as follows :-
Women – Junior (15-17), Open (Up to 35), 35 – 39, 40 – 44, 45 – 49 and so on
Men – Junior (15-17), Open (Up to 39), 40 – 44, 45 – 49 and so on
The awards are always given out at the end of year Presentation night. We will NOT be monitoring this for you – no time given to Eric or Paul, no award!!
Your age for the whole of the 2021 Club Champs will be your age as at 29 March 2021 to avoid you possibly being eligible for 2 age groups in one year.
We are looking for the club champion in each age group over all the distances and the best position at NESS XC league. You can have as many attempts as you like – we will count your best time or position.
Please be aware of the following rules, which will be strictly adhered to :-
- You MUST notify the administrators of your times (including race name and date) within 30 days of the event. Failure to do so will result in that time not being registered. This is to prevent people ‘saving up’ their times for later in the year and then registering them. As we only restarted Club Champs we are allowing a grace period until 13 June 2021 to notify of any times achieved from 29th March 2021.
- In order for a time to be registered for Club Champs, the person concerned MUST have worn a club vest for the event in question. This also applies for ‘second claim’ members of GBRC.
The spreadsheet with current standings for 2021 is now available below. It shows age categories for each club member as of 29 March 2021 along with the current best times and positions for each race distance. Spreadsheet will be maintained by Paul Davison and will be updated periodically on the website.
