Club Championship and Member of the Month


After a successful 2018, the Club Championship will run again in 2019. Below you’ll find details of how it will work. 

MRC Race Championship

The committee will nominate one race (or maybe more) per month. We encourage as many members as possible to enter these races; we will, initially at least, keep these races relatively local, and aim for distances up to half-marathon.
You can choose to enter as many of the monthly nominated races as you like, and you will be awarded points based on your position in the race compared with other MRC runners taking part.
1st MRC runner home         10 points
2nd                                       9
3rd                                        8
Etc. The minimum award for completing a race is 5 points.
 
Your best 6 results in the year will count. Only MRC nominated races will count in this bit. There is a list of the nominated races below - we will amend it if necessary during the year (if a race is cancelled, sells out early etc).

In addition you will be able to score points by taking part in the MRC10k. Points will be awarded as above. In this case your results from half the races we hold will count - so, if we arrange 8 MRC 10ks in a year, your best 4 positions will count.
 
Your total points from the Nominated Races and MRC 10ks will give your score for the year, and the top scorers will be the overall winners.
 
Age grading: as well as the overall winners, we'll also have people's ages and will award prizes for the best scores in M and F 40, 50 and 60 (only one prize per person of course.)
