Many thanks to all members who took the time to vote in the survey back in August about the format of the Club Championship & more recently submitted a list of preferred races. As a result of your feedback we are making a significant change for 2019 - the series still consists of 17 races but it is now BEST 7 POINTS SCORES to count (rather than best 9). We hope that this will open up the competition to those who have struggled in the past to complete 9 races due to work & family commitments, whilst still supporting many local events & maintaining a full calendar for those who like to plan their year around our club races.  


9 of the 10 most popular club races from 2018 (based on submissions received) have been retained - the exception being the Village Bakery Wrexham Half Marathon, which we decided to exclude for next year because it clashes with the final cross-country race of the season. The alternative race we've chosen in February, at Carsington Water in Derbyshire, is a week later & comes highly recommended ("undulating, traffic-free trails...stunning views of the Lake & surrounding Peak District countryside...ideal as part of a Spring marathon training schedule..."). There's also a pub less than a mile from Race HQ which welcomes coach parties...


There are also returns for the Oldham 10K (although with a different route, now organised by Muir's Miles), Mossley 10K & Wilmslow Half Marathon. Wilmslow has always been a popular event amongst RRRs, particularly those preparing for an April marathon, but this is the 1st time for several years that it has not clashed/been too close to either the Dentdale Run or Greater Manchester Marathon.   


As always, in addition to taking into account your suggestions we have considered cost of entry & distance to travel, whilst also attempting to allow a reasonable gap between events - particularly the longer races. Whilst we know that we can never please everybody, we hope that all members will find enough options here to complete at least 7 races & hopefully more!
