HANDY CROSS CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP 2022
The aim of the club championship is to increase club participation at races and make the club’s name more widely known at local races; and in turn entice new members into our running community.
We also hope that by choosing different distances that our members will try a race perhaps they would have dismissed previously as too long, too fast, too hard etc.
The club championship is open to all paid up members of the club and runs for the entire calendar year.
Points are scored solely for participating in local races and for marshalling at club events. One point will scored for any of the following:
- Any Chiltern League Cross Country event
- Any Thames Valley Cross Country (except HX)
- Summer 5K series (except HX)
- Wokingham ½ – February
- Maidenhead 10 – April
- Beaconsfield 5 – April
- Penn 7 – June
- Burnham Beeches ½ or 10K – August
- Maidenhead ½ – September
- Marlow ½ or 7 – November
- Rugged Radnage – November
- Any marathon (1 only)
Plus, 1pt for marshalling the Marlow5, Wycombe Half, HX summer 5K, HX TVXC (including extra point for helping on set up days) and extra 1pt for supplying an additional marshal (max 1 per event).
Apart from bragging rights and a shiny trophy, there will be a prize given to the top male and female in the league on completion of the year.
As the championship is now based purely on participation, all members will be automatically entered into the competition. Should you have any questions regarding the above then don’t hesitate to speak to Simon Adams at the club for more information.
