The Club Championship consists of 36 club nominated races (37 for Ladies with the addition of the Ladies 10k).
Twelve of these races must be completed and runners must complete at least one from each of the seven categories, in order to qualify for the Championship. If more than twelve races are completed, the runner’s best twelve will count (as long as within those best 12 one race has been completed from each of the seven sections). In the event of a tie on points, the average age-graded percentage over those twelve best races will count.
These races, and the revised format of the Championship, are selected by the Club Championship Secretary and approved by the Committee each year. The races selected try to create a wide range of competition amongst club members, over a variety of distances and terrain and to encourage Trotters to participate in local races without creating a demanding, or expensive, racing schedule.
These races are scored on an age-graded basis with points being awarded for each race. 50 points will be awarded for the best age-graded performance for each race, with 49 for 2nd, 48 for 3rd and so on.
All competitors in races are expected to abide by the rules laid down by the race organisers and by the club committee. Competitors must start at the gun and complete the whole course under their own steam. Anyone flouting these conditions may find themselves being disqualified and thus not receiving any club championship points.
