Road Race Series 2018

Rules for the Road Race Series 2018

There will be 10 races from which to choose, the best 8 (eight) races will count for the championship.

These events are exactly the same as the Wiltshire Road Race League events (WRRL). This way not only are members competing against each other within the club but also collectively for the club against the rest of Wiltshire.

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.

Only the best 8 races for each runner will count, so you don't have to run every race, however if there is a tie for the winners then the 9th and 10th races will be taken into consideration until a winner is established.

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

  10. Castle Combe Chilly 10k - (Sunday,18th Feb & 18 Nov - Best time to count) This event is being run similar to how the Heddington 5k races have been organised the previous couple of years. It will top and tail the league, providing runners two opportunities to get their best time to count in a "virtual result" created for the league. It will also provide the opportunity for runners to gauge how they have improved throughout the year by competing in both races.
