Due to Covid-19 and the current Government restrictions, it is with regret that the Road Running Championships for 2020 have been cancelled. 2 races were completed prior to the lockdown and the resultant tables can be found here. If any other races are completed before the end of the season their results will be included into the relevant tables, but only for the sake of interest.
Championship Rules 2020
1. The races for the 2020 WAC Road Runners Championship, which are listed below, consist of the 12 League events nominated for the DRRL, less the Wimborne 10 (11 in total).
2. All paid up members qualify (agreed and confirmed by the membership secretary). No membership – No points!
3. First claim runners and second claim runners, whose first claim team does not have a road running section, will qualify.
4. Athletes are to enter races as a Wimborne Athletic Club runner and are obliged to wear club colours.
5. The scoring system in each race is as follows:
a. 1st male and female: 50 points;
b. 2nd male and female: 49 points;
c. 3rd male and female: 48 points;
d. 4th male and female: 47 points (etc).
6. Positions will be taken from the official race results. All WAC finishers, aged 18 and above, will receive points.
7. Awards will be presented to male and female winners and runners-up, in the following age groups: under 35; 36-45; 46-55; 56-65; 66 & over. Age on 31st December of the Championship year determines the age group for the entire year.
8. To qualify for an award, runners must complete at least 6 races.
9. A bonus of 5 points will be awarded to runners for every race completed over the minimum 6.
10. At the end of the season, runners’ best 6 results will be totalled, and any subsequent bonus points will be added. Runners with the highest score take the awards.
11. In the event of a tie, athletes who have completed the most races will be the winner. If still tied, the best time in the last Championship race (that the tied runners finished) will be used as the decider. And, if still tied, the award will be shared.
12. If any Championship race is cancelled by the Race or Championship Organiser or deemed not suitable, for whatever reason, the total number of Championship races will be reduced accordingly.
13. All athletes
have a responsibility to ensure their details are given correctly when entering
races. Club Championship and Race
Organisers must be advised of any changes, ideally prior to the event taking
place. Failure to do so may result in
you not being included in the Championship results for that race. The responsibility is on the individual, not
the Championship Organiser.
