Off Road Race Series 2020

Rules for the Off Road Series

This year we have decided to change the format and to give members a much wider choice of events at the same time keeping the Wiltshire League and including the Gwent League events.

So this year (January to December) there will be 20 races from which to choose, all the WORL races for 2020 and all the Gwent League races for 2020 plus other events which may include some races further afield, to add variety to the choice.

However only the best 8 (eight) races will count for the championship.

The first AVR runner will get 1 point, the 2nd will get 2 points and so on until all runners are accounted for. Non runners will get five points more than the number of points of the last runner of the highest attended race. The winner will be the runner with the least points.

Since only the best 8 races for each runner will count, you don't have to run every race, however if there is a tie for the winners then the 9th race will be taken into consideration until a winner is established.

Awards will be made to the top three highest scoring men and women.

Nine of the Qualifying events which were to be held are: However the entire competition has been cancelled this year due to the pandemic.
