Club Championship

The Championship

The CRC Club Championship is a closed club championship that is designed to reward  club representation within the club championship events along with strong individual performances. 

The Championship for 2020 will comprise of 12 core races, a park run and a CRC closed event (the Heddington Hill Climb).

These races have been chosen to incorporate the Wiltshire Road Race League races in an attempt to ensure good CRC numbers are present to support the club at these events.  This will also gain the club points in the league! For more information on the Wiltshire Road Race League, please follow this link to the Wiltshire Athletic Association Website.

How it works

Championship Results: The Male and Female Championships are run separately, but in the same way. So, if five male runners complete a race that is in the Championship, the first CRC runner home will receive 20 points, the second home will receive 19, third 18 points, fourth 17 points and fifth 16 points. This will work in the same way for the female athletes.

Further points are available to members in the CRC club championships for the following:

  • Any additional half marathon completed in 2020 means you can gain 20 bonus points (though you can only claim this once, so if you do 3 marathons you can only claim bonus points once)
  • Any additional marathon completed in 2020 means you can gain 20 bonus points. (though you can only claim this once, so if you do 3 marathons you can only claim bonus points once).
  • Ultra’s: We understand that we have a strong ultra running contingent within the club. With this in mind you can claim 20 bonus points for up to 2 ultra races completed in 2020 (so up to 40 bonus points) any race over a marathon distance counts.

**Please note, where the bonus point system is concerned, you must let us know that you have completed a race that means you can claim bonus points. We will not go looking though results!**

So essentially, if you turn up and represent CRC at as many races as possible, you will be in with a shout of winning the Championship!  Good luck!
