Parkrun

For parkrun, please can you all ensure you are registered as Chippenham Harriers. This will mean we can pick up the timings more easily and promote our club. Otherwise, send the location/date and your name to 

Avebury 10k (National Trust)

This event is not officially timed, please can you send a Strava or similar link so we can pick up the results, or post on the Facebook page after the event. This worked reasonably well last year from the Facebook postings.

Rules

Rules are published on the website and can be found from the menu under Club Championships, in summary there will be the usual two categories (with slight adjustment) and the two age adjusted categories.

Points

Points will be based on relative position in each race amongst fellow club members starting at 30 points for 1st, down to no less than 5 points for finishing. Points are accumulated for each race and assuming you complete all races the worst two scores will be dropped. So you do not have to enter all races to get maximum points.

Abstaining

If you do not wish to be in the Championship for any reason, please message me or contact the committee. You will need to be a paid club member at the end of the season to be eligible for a prize.

We look forward to seeing you all at the races! (and parkrun)
