Road Race Series 2020

Rules for the Road Race Series 2020

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.

  1. Devizes Half Marathon - 5th April
  2. Highworth5 - 19th April
  3. Westbury 5k Series* - 19th May, 16th June, 21st July & 18th August

  • Extra event** as an opportunity to pick up points for each club: Hullavington Marathon relay event - 20 September


* A runner only has to run in one event to count. At the end of all four 5k events a virtual result will be pulled together by which the WRRL scores will be calculated.

** No individual points are available at this event. This event is an extra event to provide clubs with the chance to gain extra points for their clubs. This means, for clubs, it will be the best 8 of 10 races to count with the relay event being added on top of this.
