Club Championship

The 2024 – 2025 Club Championship season has just begun!

My, what a short interlude it has been! Now it is back. With the 2024 – 2025 season just starting, it is now time to start the next competition!
It will look similar to last year, with the scoring will still be based on your best ten results to count.

We have included some old favourites as well as some that you may not have done before, with more events to be added throughout 2024. The list of Club Championship races so far is shown below.

Prologue:
Like many other running clubs, Westbury Harriers has a Club Championship! The aim is to encourage members of all abilities to participate in local races, and in doing so have fun whilst raising the profile of the club. The list of races in the Championship is published in advance (on Facebook and below) and points are awarded when you participate. Your best ten races count towards the final standings. At the end of the Championship year, prizes (Up and Running vouchers) are awarded to the top ten men and women in the standings and there are additional prizes for those who are top in their age category.
So if you are looking for a new challenge or just want to do some races knowing you will meet other Westbury Harriers, sign up for a Championship event!
 

Points are allocated on the following basis:

  • Men: 30 points for 1st Westbury man down to 10 points for the 21st and any subsequent placing.
  • Women: 30 points for 1st Westbury lady down to 10 points for the 21st and any subsequent placing.
