Club Champs


We are keeping similar format for the 2022 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 15th November 2021 and 13th November 2022. 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

Your age for the whole of the 2022 Club Champs will be your age as at 15th November 2021 to avoid you possibly being eligible for 2 age groups in one year.

There is a change this year regarding Senior (Open) Female category. It has been agreed that this year the ‘Ladies Senior’ age category would go to 40 (instead of 35) in line with the Essex Athletics definition of “senior”. We have therefore removed our F35 category from Club Champs.

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 :-

Junior (15-17), Senior (Up to 39), 40 – 44, 45 – 49 and so on

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.

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 Paul, no award!!

Please be aware of the following rules, which will be strictly adhered to :-

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. ‘Second Claim’ members of GBRC are not eligible for Club Champs.

The spreadsheet with final standings for 2022 is now available below. It shows age categories for each club member as of 15th November 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.
