Each year the club chooses around 25 road races spread throughout the year that vary in distance from 5K to a marathon and to complete the Road Championship you need to run in at least 8 of these races to qualify. You choose which races you run and typically around half the races are 5 miles or less so everyone can compete. Any Parkrun races, you must be registered with ParkRun and have Thornton Cleveleys Running Club set as your Home Club, don’t forget your barcode, no code, no time and so will not count in the Off Road Championship. Interclub races, you must wear your allocated Interclub Number.
Scoring Everyone who completes their 8 races in the Road Championship will receive an award. There are prizes for the overall winners of the Road Championship for both men and women but we also have awards for winners by ‘Vet’ age category.
The scoring is done separately for men and women in each race. In each race the first TCRC man to finish scores 1 point, the second scores 2 points, the third scores 3 points and so on until the last who, if there were 7 TCRC men in the race, would score 7 points. The same applies to women with the first TCRC lady scoring 1 point and the second scoring 2 points etc. At the end of the year you add together your 8 lowest scores and whoever has the lowest total in each is the winner.
As well as having an overall winner we also have awards for men and women in each age category (Vet40, Vet45, Vet50 etc) so even if you’re not the fastest Road or Off Road runner in the club you may still win your age category. So if you are the first Vet40 TCRC man to finish you will score 1 point in the Vet40 Road Championship and 2 points for second Vet40 etc.
What do we do if 2 people have exactly the same score for an award at the end of the year? We compare their ‘head to head’ results and look at who finished in front of the other one the most times and if that’s still a draw the it’s who had the most first places.
