You will all be receiving parkrun style barcodes shortly – please bring these along with you to all club races!
Please note that to be eligible to score championship points, you need to be a paid up HR club member and also need to wear an HR top. The use of headphones is not permitted in either of these events, as you will be running along roads and country lanes which are not closed to traffic.
There are 3 separate club championships – first past the post; age graded; target times.
At the end of the year your points for your 8 best races are added together to give your total points score in each category.
For the target times championship only; you must complete at least 3 of the 7 – 8 club races. In addition you can obtain 200 bonus points in this category by marshalling at one of the club races. If you choose not to marshal a race, then you have no chance of winning! As there are a limited number of marshals required for each race, then it pays to marshal early on in the calendar year as you may find later in the year that all the marshalling slots are already taken!
