The idea behind the Club Championship is to find the best male and female runners in the club. An annual event, we use a wide selection of races to decide the crème de la crème! Out of those races, your top five finishing positions, against your fellow Burgess Hill Runners, will count towards the Club Championship.
To qualify for the Championship you must have run at least five of the races listed below. If you have run more you’ll have more races to choose from, which may increase your odds! After the final race, your top five finishing positions are selected, added together and the runner with the lowest number will be declared the overall winner in both male and female categories. The prize – an impressive looking shield to place on your mantelpiece or other prominent position in your home!
For example: Finishing Positions by runner
Lavis is the winner!
Age category winners will also be awarded (your age at the end of the year will dictate which category you fall in).
The aim is to make the Championship a fair competition and accessible for all club members. With a choice of different races over the course of the year we hope it is seen as a fun event with a slightly competitive edge to spice things up!
