The Club Championships run throughout the year and have a series of events both local and further afield at various distances. These tend to get a good turnout of CVFR runners so even if you aren’t expecting to win any prizes then they will still offer a good opportunity for you to discover great new races and get to run with fellow club members.
2021 Virtual Championship
With normal racing continuing to look uncertain we have opted for a time trial format for this years championships.
Rules Read More
Each time trial will run for an entire calendar month. After running your best time please submit your results to firstname.lastname@example.org
Strava must be set to race mode as elapsed time rather than moving time is the key here.
If a race does go ahead in the month a race is listed then you can count that result towards this challenge. Vests must be worn in actual race situations, though are not compulsory when running a time trial.
Kit Requirement depends on if we have put the clocks forward or not. Races in British Summer Time require you to carry a coat and whistle. In Winter Time the minimum kit is hat, coat, trousers, gloves, whistle. You are always welcome to carry more than minimum kit if the conditions require it.
Lockdown You should not breach any regional or national laws. Please also consider advice and work to minimise associated risks.
Champs Scoring: Your best 3 results at each distance will count towards the overall result. (If less than 5 races can be legally run by anyone in the club then this will be reduced to 2)
Short/Medium Race Kings and Queens: All results from the particular distance are counted to decide these titles.
Handicap Championships: Best 3 handicapped results from each distance to count (handicaps based on performance over the previous years).Those without race history will not be eligible for handicap points.
No Long category will be included this year. Any races over 20km will still fall into the Medium category.
GPS is allowed, indeed encouraged as there will be no flags.
With most of these races likely to exist purely as a virtual run, there will not be any entry fees to pay. The various races that exist in the fell running calendar on a typical year will often be donating a portion of the entry fees to worthwhile charities in the area.
To go someway towards plugging that hole, we have set up a fundraising pot. If you do feel like donating to this in lieu of a portion of your usual race entry fee budget then we will gather it together and share it all out between a number of local charities.
