Road Running Championship 2016

Knowsley Harriers AC has a strong road running member base and so to reflect this we operate an annual road running championship. In each race every member will be given a score based upon their finishing position against other members of Knowsley Harriers AC. We are trying a variation of the scoring system this year to make ‘all races equal’ First member home will score 40 points, second 39, and so on. All members running will score a least 1 point .

As members will likely be pursuing there own individual goals  in 2016 and we don’t want to risk  over racing, the number of qualifying races will remain at 8 this year.

All races with ********* at the end are races which are also part of the Merseyside Grand Prix which the club has entered again this year.
Where there are 2 races in one such as Wirral these will be combined to give one set of points using a formula.

  • At KHAC members can vote with their feet, and if any race has more than 20 members taking part this is then added to the championship.
  • It is your best 8 points totals out of the club championship races that count during the year. Due to risks of injury etc we would not expect our members to participate in every race.
  • When you enter a race please use “Knowsley Harriers AC” as club name, this makes it easier to collate results after each race.
  • The overall winners for both Male & Female categories plus vet categories will be announced at the 2016 Christmas awards ceremony.
