Runners who are fully affiliated members of CRC will automatically be entered into the Club Championship.
The Club Captains may substitute club championship races through consultation with the club committee in the event of race cancellations, clashes etc.
It is the runners' responsibility to enter races in good time. No concessions will be made if entry limits prevent anyone competing in a club championship race. TO BE COMPLIANT WITH UK ATHLETICS, ALL ATHLETES MUST RUN UNDER THEIR OWN NAME. SWAPPING OF BIBS IS NOT PERMITTED.
To earn points, runners must compete under Caldicot Running Club in eligible races.
Club championship runners will earn points depending on their club position.
In total there are 12 opportunities to gain points, so your best 6 scores will count towards the result so you can pick and choose your events around your life.
Runners must compete wearing CRC vests as the upper layer in eligible races. Runners wishing to run for charity may wear a charity running shirt and earn points, only with prior agreement with the Club Captains.
Runners finish times will be used to calculate an age-graded score (https://www.runnersworld.com/tools/age-grade-calculator). Ages used in calculations will be the runner's age on the day of the race.
Official race finishing times will be used in age-grading calculations. These will be chip times, where they are available.
For each eligible race, club championship runners will earn points depending on their club position using age-graded times.
There will be 4 prizes, male & female overall, and male & female age graded.
Prizes will be awarded at the annual club awards ceremony.
In the event of a tie for final points in any category, a head-to-head race performance will be used to determine the category winner. If a winner can still not be determined, a local one off event will determine the winner.
