The races for the 2023 club championships are below.

Your best scoring race from each category will count towards your total. Your best result in short, medium and long categories count towards your total, plus your best other result (any category).

Rules for 2023

  1. The club championship will consist of 9 FRA Fell Races. There will be three races selected for the club championship in each of the FRA categories of Short, Medium and Long (S, M & L).
  2. Points will be awarded based on finishing positions in each of the 9 races.
  3. The participant’s total points for the season will be calculated by adding together the points they have received for their highest scoring race in each of the 3 categories, plus their best other result (any category). This means a maximum of 4 results will count towards your total
  4. The points awarded in each race will be as follows:
    • 1st – 40 points
    • 2nd – 39 Points
    • 3rd – 38 points
    • 4th – 37 points
    • And so on…
  5. There will be separate scoring in men’s and women’s club championship competitions.
  6. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions in both the men’s and women’s club championship competitions.
  7. In the event of a tie in any of the prize positions, the following tie-breaker process will be employed:
    • The head to head results of the tied participants will be considered
    • If there is still a tie, then the participant’s best ‘other’ result, used in the calculation of their total points, will be used to determine how they performed compared to the race winner (male and female respectively) of that particular event.

      For example, if tied ‘Runner A’s best other result was Chevy Chase, which they completed in 2.5 hours, and the race was won in 2 hours, ‘Runner A’s performance was +25%. If tied ‘Runner B’s best other result was Cautley Horseshoe, which they completed in 1.5 hours and the race was won in 1 hour, ‘Runner B’s performance was +50%. In this scenario, Runner A’s performance was comparatively better, therefore they win the tie.
