2020 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP - FULL RACE LIST
Many thanks to all members who took the time to respond to the survey on the 2019 championship series. Based on your feedback, the committee decided to retain the 2019 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 saw in 2019 (an average of more than 53 RRRs per club race).
The full (original) list of races for the 2020 club championship is shown below (including links to race websites). This selection was also based on the survey responses - all the 2019 races with the highest average member rating were retained, with most of the new races suggested via the survey.
The plan was to arrange coach trips for the races at Settle, Dent, Ripon & Keswick.
The impact of COVID-19 has meant that only 3 of our original 2020 club races actually took place, but we have now added the Heaton Park 10K to the list as a replacement event. We have also decided that all points earned from these events will be carried forward to the 2021 club championship, with best 7 perfomances across the 2 years to count.
An announcement of races for 2021 will be made in due course.
PLEASE NOTE that, with the Dewsbury 10K 2020 selling out in record time, the committee has confirmed that this race WILL NOT be included in the club championship in 2021.
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.
