Striders Road Race Championship
The Striders Road Race Championships for 2018 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.

All dates have been compiled on a best endeavours basis and will be confirmed nearer the time once the respective organisers have released the details.
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
We hope the road race championship will be hugely popular this year and very competitive. If you only compete in a handful of races this season, make sure these are on your list as they are very popular with Striders.
Be sure to keep an eye out on the website and the clubs Facebook page closer to each race in the championship for more details.
