2020 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP - INITIAL RACE LIST
Many thanks to all members who took the time to respond to the recent survey on the 2019 championship series. Based on your feedback, the committee has decided to retain this year's structure - i.e. best 7 races to count out of 17. The overwhelming majority of respondents indicated that they felt this was an improvement on previous arrangements - this is also reflected in the increased numbers of participants we have seen this year (an average of more than 53 RRRs per club race).
The committee has also decided on an initial 10 races for the 2020 club championship, all of which are returning from this year's competition - see the list below (including links to race websites & entry forms where currently available). This selection is also based on the survey responses - all the races with the highest average member rating have been retained. Work is now underway to select 7 additional races to complete the 2020 race series, with races suggested via the survey as a starting point. The full programme will be confirmed before the end of the year.
PLEASE NOTE that, with the Dewsbury 10K 2020 selling out in record time, the committee has also confirmed that this race WILL NOT be included in the club championship in 2021. We will continue to liaise with the Race Director with the aim of obtaining additional places next February for those who confirmed that they were unable to secure a place.
For the 2020 club championship, points will again be awarded for each race according to the finishing order (on chip times where used), with each individual's BEST 7 SCORES to count. Click here to see the full set of rules & regulations.
