Marlborough Running Club Championship 2024

The Club Championships for 2024 will run from January to November of the year.

The Club Championships are a series of races run throughout the year over various distances with a view of inspiring some friendly competition.  It is a chance to represent the yellow and blue of Marlborough RC at some of our favourite local races, as well as our famously tricky monthly 10k courses. It is also an opportunity for support and encouragement between club members which is obvious you all have in spades!

The selected races are listed here after some great feedback from you all. There are a number of races spread throughout the year.  Runners may enter as many or as few as they wish, but only the best 10 will contribute towards their Club Championship points total.  Also within the same link is a snapshot of the current Championship standings, as well as the 'Club Best' Hall of Fame.

While we hope to see lots of MRC representation at the external races throughout the year, it is not a condition of entry.  There are internal events throughout the year which will count towards member totals.
Club Championship Races 2024
Full details and rules for the Championships are outlined here.  If you have any questions, please contact the Championship co-ordinators (Miguel Possolo, Ciaran Considine & Phil Griffiths).  A few key points to highlight on the scoring system are as follows:
  • Age-graded scoring and not absolute time will be used to determine results.
  • Categories are split between Male/Female Senior and Male/Female Veteran (45+).
  • An extensive Bonus Point section is available. This is to encourage and reward volunteering, outstanding performances & club promotion.
Please remember – you have to tell us your result.  We will not search through race listings to find you!
