Rules 2023

Eligibility

For 2023, there will be male and female championship awards for both Age Adjusted (AA) and First Past the Post (FPTP) categories.

This is open to all active club members. It is automatically calculated free of charge (excluding race entry fee) providing they fulfil the following criteria:

  • Runners have completed any 10 races of the selected 18 club championship races for the year.
  • Club runners must wear T&SH vests/shirts whilst participating in these events and
  • They must fill T&SH on any race entry forms/documents where prompted.
  • Members are considered as active provided they have signed and paid for their 2023 membership. Memberships can be signed and paid here.

Scoring

Points are awarded to club members completing each race based on their finishing position (First Past the Post category) and their overall time (Age Adjusted category) against all other club members.

The Age Adjusted category is calculated by combining a runner’s finishing time with the most recent World Masters Athletics (WMA) Age Factor, to produce an age-adjusted time. This provides a way of measuring and comparing the quality of running performances, adjusting for age, sex, and race distance. It’s the same system used by Parkrun etc.

Points are awarded on completion of a race to every club member, with maximum points of 100 awarded to 1st position, 98 for 2nd, 96 for 3rd and so on down to 50 for 26th place, where it then reduces by single points as 49 for 27th, 48 for 28th and so on, in each category.

If a race is postponed or cancelled Thirsk and Sowerby Harriers committee will make a decision regarding a substitute race as soon as possible, taking into account relevant factors such as date clashes, terrain etc.

Awards

There will be awards for positions 1, 2 & 3 in both AA and FPTP categories and for both male and female members.

Should a member place well in both AA and FPTP categories, only the highest position will be awarded (e.g. if they are 1st FPTP and 3rd AA, 1st prize FPTP will be awarded) with their lower position then awarded to the next best placed member in that category.

Should the position be the same for both Categories, AA and it’s award will take priority (e.g. 2nd and 2nd) with the FPTP position passing on to the next qualified member.

Should two club members finish with the same points total in a category based on their 10 best results, the position will then be awarded to the member with the highest total points score from all 18 championship races.

Should any club members complete all 18 races of the club championship, this achievement and consistent club representation will be recognised at the annual awards evening.
