The 2021 Club Fell Championship
A competition to find the best male and female fell runner in the club.
There is a change of format this year due to the 2020 Championship being abandoned due to Covid 19. We hope to bring that planed new format to 2022’s Champs! This year the intention has been to keep the races fairly local should further restrictions apply. Please be aware that some races are entry in advance, others the more usual entry on the day. All are subject to cancellation at short notice. Further races may be added as the calendar opens up.
For Seniors and age categories up to and including V60 THREE best results to include ONE race from each distance (S,M,L) For the Vet 70 category and beyond- ANY TWO best race results to count.
There are separate competitions for Ladies and Men. Points are awarded in each race as follows:
1st Clayton Lady 50 points; 2nd Clayton Lady 49 points; etc
1st Clayton Man 50 points; 2nd Clayton Man 49 points; etc
The points from a member’s best qualifying races are added together to determine the final rankings for Ladies and Men. The Ladies’ Champion holds the Lady Fell Champion Cup, and the Men’s Champion holds the Male Fell Champion Cup. Awards for 2nd and 3rd positions are also made to Ladies and Men.
Veteran (10 year categories commencing at age 40 for ladies and men), U20 and U23 awards are also available; the number of awards made depends on the number of members completing the competition in each age category. Age category is determined by age as at the date of the first race. Awards in a particular age category are only made to members in that age category; members in other age categories are not eligible.
