Striders Road Race Championship

The Striders Road Race Championships for 2017 is a series of 9 nominated races through the year in which club members are competing against others from within the club. Points are gained according to finishing time (see below). Scores throughout the season are kept and updated after each race.

Members compete in the usual gender and age categories; M, F, 40, 50 and 60. Presentations are made to the leading runners in each category at the A.G.M. following the competition. In addition the medals are presented to the leading and second placed runners in each of the various categories.

Scoring

The overall winning times in each race for both Male and Females are noted, then your finishing time is compared to that. Bonus points as also awarded for running, the bonus points are 10pts per race. Best 5 race scores through season count (excluding bonus points), ie, ‘half’ the races in the championship.

  • Winning man runs in 1hr dead….. 1:00:00 (this is classed as 100%)
  • Winning Time / Striders Time * 100 gives the Striders time as a percentage against the winning time.
  • Strider A runs 1:05:00 (92.31%, so 92.31 pts)
    Strider B runs 1:10:00 (85.71%, so 85.71 pts)
    Strider C runs 1:15:00 (80.00%, so 80.00 pts)
    Strider D runs 1:20:00 (75.00%, so 75.00 pts)
  • A great thing about this system is that the ladies times are compared against the ladies winning time.
  • We then add bonus points for running each race at 10pts per race to encourage participation
