Club Competitions

As a club member you will have the opportunity to take on club mates in a series of competitions throughout the year.  These are not just about who is fastest on any one route.  We have championships that require you to be a steady all rounder or handicap events that require you to demonstrate that you are trying harder than everyone else whatever your ability.

Our Club Championship is a series of races consisting of short, medium and long distances which run throughout the year. Our Ultra Championship is for the lover of miles and enjoy a long day out on the hills and in contrast the Summer Series are a series of short races taking part, as the title implies, during summer months. The Summer Series is intended as ideal introduction to fell racing.

We also have some inter club events which include our Summer and Winter handicaps. Any club member has a chance of lifting a handicap title.

Various Score Events take place through the year, some in daylight, some in the dark.  These are orienteering activities where you have to get to as many control points as possible within a given time.  Here map reading skills are just as important as running fast.  These dates vary and will usually be well advertised on the facebook group and group email.  Often the score events might be opened up to neighbouring clubs, and likewise we might be invited to their competitions.

Results from previous years can be found on the Historic Results page, along with race ratings from previous years.

For those with a desire to study the finer details of the rules, we have the very wordy but very precise set of rules listed in this document.
