The Shaun Armstrong Memorial
Royton Road Runners Cup
A free-to-enter annual competition, first introduced in 2013 & open to all club members, the RRR Cup builds on our support for & regular participation at Oldham parkrun - which takes place in Alexandra Park at 9am every Saturday morning.
The format is very simple - participating RRR members race against each other 'head-to-head' according to a random draw, with 'matches' taking place at Oldham parkrun on a mutually agreed date.
Winners are decided on a handicap based on best (recent) 5K times where available.
There is no requirement to run in club colours, although you'll look much better if you do. Competitors should introduce themselves to their opponent before the start, so that they know they are both present & the match is 'on' - a firm, friendly handshake is recommended, although hugging is permitted if both parties agree.
Any use of 'mind games' is optional...
PLEASE NOTE that you must have your parkrun barcode with you on the day of your match. No barcode means your time won't appear in the official results & that will result in an automatic walkover for your opponent!
IF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FINISHING TIMES OF THE TWO RUNNERS IS GREATER THAN THE STATED HANDICAP, THE PERSON NAMED FIRST WINS.
IF IT IS LESS THAN THE HANDICAP, THE PERSON NAMED SECOND WINS.
