Telford Harriers 2016 Race League
As usual the race league will run throughout 2016 and trophies will be awarded to the Senior Male/Female and Vet Male/Female with the most points at the end of the year. There will also be a new trophy this year, the Muster trophy for the person attending the most ‘pointed’ races.
The race league includes something for everyone, a cross section of race distances, the staffs league XC and several off road races throughout the year. It will also include all club handicap races so plenty of opportunity to gain lots of points and show support to another classic club series.
The points system will work the same as the Sexarathon races, first harrier over the line in each category gets 100 points, 2nd 99 and so on. Also every harrier who volunteers to marshal at the Ironbridge half marathon will be awarded 100 points towards the league.
You will remain in the age category you were in on 9th January as the date of the first race for the duration of the 2016 league. For the purposes of the race league you are a senior if you are under the age of 40 and a Vet if 40 or over.
I will keep a track of all race points and will publish the league every month up to October after which you will have to wait until the presentation evening for the winners to be announced.
Any questions please ask. Happy racing everyone
