2020-21 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP - FULL RACE LIST
The Mossley 10K, originally planned for 18th July 2021, has been postponed.
The race organisers have advised that, for runners who have already purchased race entries, these entries will automatically be moved to the next race.
It is hoped thayt the race can be rearranged for later this year.
A decision on how this impacts the Club Championship will be made in due course.
Since England Athletics published its plan for a return to running following the announcement of the UK government roadmap, the RRR committee has been discussing the possible make-up of the RRR Club Championship for 2021. As I'm sure you are aware, we have already made the decision to carry forward the points earned from the four races that were able to go ahead in 2020, with results being put together for a combined 2020-21 championship (best seven points scores to count).
We are now pleased to announce the full race list - see below for dates and links to entry details (where available). These are of course all subject to the roadmap not changing.
There were a number of factors taken into account in coming up with this list:
- we wanted to include enough races to give members plenty of opportunities to complete seven 'counting' races (we're not expecting people to do every race, especially in the busy June/July period!)
- although the EA roadmap allows licensed events to take place from Step 2 (12th April at earliest), we didn't think it appropriate to include/recommend races prior to Step 3 (17th May at earliest) when travel restrictions are removed
- we have tried to include all possible events that were in the original 2020 race calendar and had to be postponed, as we know that many members have paid for entries & deferred to this year (including the Rochdale Half Marathon - although we appreciate that for some this clashes with marathons also deferred to October)
If you have any questions please let us know.
For the 2020-21 club championship, points will as usual be awarded for each race according to the finishing order (on chip times where used), with each individual's BEST 7 SCORES to count.
