Road Race Series 2019

Rules for the Road Race Series 2019

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.

Qualifying events:

  1. Good Friday 10 Miler - 19th April
  2. Corsham 10k - 28th April
  3. The Shrewton Bustard 10k - 19th May
  4. Broad Town 5 - 15th June
  5. Melksham FC 10K - 30th June
  6. Heddington 5k Series - 14th May, 11th June & 9th July - best of three
  7. Colerne Under the Posts 5 miler - 21st July
  8. Two Tunnels Relay event (5 x 10k - 18th August - see below
  9. Chippenham Half Marathon - tbc
  10. Devizes 10k - tbc
  11. Clock Change Challenge 10k - 27th October

The Two Tunnels relay will be a team event, all 5 runners must be from the same club

This relay will NOT count towards the individual standings, hence there are 11 races. For the individual standings, it will still be your best 8 of the 10 races to count. The relay event will be an opportunity for the club to gain extra points. It's an extra event to build an added element to the league.

Next year ... 2020
