The club is delighted to announce the final details of the 2018 senior club championships.

To be eligible for the club championship prizes, you must complete 5 of the designated races. 
100 points will be awarded for the first LAC athlete across the finish line, 99 for second and so on. Prizes will be awarded to the 3 highest scoring male and 3 highest scoring female athletes when all races have been completed. 

There will be 11 designated club championship races in the period of February 2018 to November 2018 (see below). The races have been selected to represent the feedback from club members and provide a variety of events spread across the year.  The events selected are, in the majority, local races that are easy to enter and represent the types of races that the current club members are targeting. Apologies if your favourite race is not in the list.

In the event of a tie, head to head performance will be taken into consideration (first placed runner declared winner), followed by number of events completed (highest declared winner). If an athlete completes more than 5 races, then the athlete’s best 5 will be taken into consideration.
It is an athlete’s responsibility to enter themselves for the designated races and cover the cost.

Handicap

There will also be a prize awarded for the best male and best female based upon a handicap scoring system. The handicap for each athlete will be calculated against the fastest 10k time by a senior athlete in 2017.

WAVA

There will also be an individual male and female prize for the best age graded performance according to WAVA. This can only be calculated on standard race distances (i.e. 5k, 10k etc) and will therefore not apply to the hill race (Dumyat).

Keep up to date with all the events in the weekly round-up.
