         Club Championship Rules:

  • Who to contact: Men’s captain, Steve Robertson or Women’s Club Representative, Andrea Banner.
  • You must put your dispute in writing within one month, post race date.
  • Submit your document in writing to Andrea or Graham. The club will do it’s utmost to resolve such matters in a timely, fair & impartial manner.
  • Athletes must be aged 18 & over before the first race in order to compete in the championship.
  • If you run in a championship race you will be automatically included in the results.
  • If you cannot run in the race you have entered: Contact the race organiser & ask what your options are. Follow their advice. Do not simply hand over your race number to another fellow runner: Doing so could adversely affect overall standings in the championship. 
  • In the event of a tie, a count back method will apply. In the event of minimum participation, per age group: then the awards will be pro rata.
  • Entering as an un-attached runner will mean any result will not be recognised by the club, for the purpose of both club championship formats.
