Winter 2018 Club Championships

  1. There are 10 races selected and listed below (spread across November to March)
  2. To complete the championship, runners must run any 4 of the 10 races, where the best 4 will count.
  3. Scoring is based on the chip time of Barrow runners from race results, i.e. fastest Barrow male and female finisher awarded 100 points, 2nd fastest finisher 99 points and so on...Chip time was selected as the fairest system for capturing position, so as not to give a head start to those standing closer to the start line.
  4. The tables are split male/female then by age categories (with ten year gaps V40-V80 plus junior).
  5. Table updates and publishing will be quick, as soon as results are available.
