SETTLE HARRIERS CHAMPIONSHIP RACES 2019

The Senior Club Championships for 2019 will run from 5th January 2019 until the 17th November 2019, with 20 opportunities to bag some championship points.  The championship commences with the Club handicap on the 5th January which also is the final race of the 2018 Championship.

Several of the races will also feature in the Junior Club Championship list – in the hope of making these enjoyable club and family days out. The overall objective is to get members out there competing – and hopefully having a great time as well!

NOTES

  1. The January Handicap race, run as the final race in the 2018 series, will also be a counter for this year’s Championship. This will mean the 2019 championship will be completed after the final race in November.  A Harriers social event is planned for December which will include the prize giving for this year’s championship. (This will be the pattern for future Championships)
  2. Races highlighted in GREEN are those included in the English Championships AND ARE NOT A PART OF OUR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP; several club members are looking to run in the national series.
  3. The three races organised by the Harriers, highlighted in ORANGE, can only go ahead with your support as marshals etc. PLEASE GIVE YOUR SUPPORT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO RACE ORGANISERS CAN SLEEP EASY AS THEIR RACE DATE APPROACHES!
  4. Chris Beesley has offered to organise two ‘fun’ events on Wednesday evenings during the summer. These are members only events instead of the regular training session.
  5. No races have been scheduled in August as this frequently conflicts with family holidays and has historically seen low participation in Championship races.
  6. Races which are on a Wednesday evening will replace the scheduled training session.
  7. The CRO Ingleborough event is not a race, but has been included so that members can support our local rescue organisation. (See scoring below). This is a sponsorship event. The minimum sponsorship donations are: £25/35Km, £15/20km.
  8. Entry fees. Most of the races included allow entry on the day, but many charge more for doing so-it’s easier for the organisers to have runners pre enter. Usually the extra is only a couple of pounds, but some, such as the Tour of Pendle, charge considerably more as a means of encouraging pre-entry.
  9. The club plan to enter the two major relay events in October. Teams for both will be identified nearer the time, but the plan is to enter our strongest teams in both events.
  10. Several of the races will also feature in the Junior Club Championship list – in the hope of making these enjoyable club and family days out. The overall objective is to get members out there competing – and hopefully having a great time as well! 

RULES & SCORING

    • Scoring is separate for Men & Women.
    • For each race, 20 points are awarded to the 1st Settle Harrier home, 17 for the second, 15 for 3rd, 14 for 4th, 13 for 5th etc. 17th onwards = 1 point
    • You can run in any number of races, but if you run more than 6, your best-scoring 6 will count for the championship. Races should include at least one from two or more categories.  *(Many members have already completed both medium and short category races through the Club Handicap and Giggleswick races in January )
    • Senior runners receive a 10 point bonus if they complete a “long” distance race
    • Senior runners receive a 5 point bonus for each race they complete beyond six races.
    • Additional prizes will be given by the club for those completing more than six races.
    • Senior runners will secure a 15 point for completing either of the CRO events. If completing the longer distance runners will receive 10 points as normal for ‘Long’ races.
    • Under 21s receive a 10 point bonus if they complete a “medium” distance race
    • Prizes: At the end of the year, awards are made to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female, the 1st V50 men and women (if not in the top 3 overall) and to the member who has completed the most races.  There will also be prizes for those completing more than six races.
