For the 2019 Club Championship 10 fell races have been selected, your best five scores will count, and prizes will be awarded to the top runners, female and veteran runners.
Best of up to 5 scores, from the 10 Championship races, to count; the 5 races must include races at two lengths of the Fell Runners Association (FRA) categories Short (S, <10km), Medium (M, 10-20km) and Long (L, >20km). 50 points are awarded to the first Bingley runner down to 1 point for the 50th runner. It would be great to see 1 point awarded in at least one of the races – it is possible, we had 56 runners out in the Dec 18 GWF relay!
To get points you must be entered as a Bingley Harrier and club vests must be worn
There will be one results category for each of these groups:
1) The whole club
3) Women Vet 40
4) Men Vet 40
5) Women V50
6) Men Vet 50
7) Women Vet 60
8) Men Vet 60
In 2018 & 19 we reduced the number of races and qualifiers in the Club championships to limit fixture clashes for athletes and help the club focus on priority events. We want as many runners as possible to take part in the fell championship, and have chosen a mix of Short, Medium and Long races to encourage new runners to take part but also provide challenge to experienced fell runners.
